Schroders launches global climate change fund

Schroders has launched a global climate change fund for investors interested in companies involved in the mitigation of, or adaptation to, the effects of climate change.

The aim of the Fund is to provide long term out-performance of the MSCI World Index from a concentrated portfolio of 50 to 80 stocks.

The Fund, opening to investors in September, will be managed by Simon Webber and Matthew Franklin and will be supported by a team of climate change specialists, global sector specialists and Schroders’ network of large and small cap analysts.

Schroders Global Climate Change Fund joint fund manager Simon Webber says: “Investors simply can’t afford to ignore the realities of climate change. Across all sectors, climate change will have a broad and lasting impact along the value chain.

“For the mainstream equity investor, now is the time to adopt a global approach to what will be a major investment theme for the foreseeable future. Crucially, Schroders has the capability to take a global approach to a global challenge – enabling us to identify the broadest possible opportunity set.”
