Introducing the Schroder Global Sustainable Equity Fund

The Schroder Global Sustainable Equity Fund is an actively managed, ESG conscious, index unconstrained, highly diversified quantitative equity product (QEP). The objective of the Fund is to generate long-term returns before fees in excess of traditional capitalisation weighted global equity indices.

The Fund also targets a weighted average carbon intensity lower than the benchmark index as set out by its Carbon Intensity Goal Objective.1

Actively managed sustainable investing

We focus on two strategies we assess as key drivers of long-term equity returns: stock valuation (dividends, cash flow, earnings and assets) and business quality (as defined by measures of company profitability, stability, financial strength, structural growth and governance.

Why Schroders?

Deep research and portfolio construction capabilities

The Fund’s investment team has the resources and experience to research an exceptionally broad investment universe of over 10,000 stocks. The Fund’s high level of diversification minimises stock-specific risk without sacrificing conviction, enabling investment wherever we find the best investment opportunities that take ESG factors into account.

Quantitative investing

Our dedicated and well-resourced quantitative equity product (QEP) investment team has clear ownership and accountability for meeting the investment objective of the Fund.

ESG investing expertise

We look at both a company’s profits and how it generates them. So alongside risk and return, we consider a third dimension – ESG risk – which is embedded into our sustainable fund investment process. We find that only by considering these three pillars together can we uncover a company’s real investment potential.

The role of the Schroder Global Sustainable Equity Fund in your portfolio

A component of an equity allocation – The Fund can be combined with other international equity holdings to provide diversification and a different source of return.

An alternative asset allocation – The Fund can be used as an alternative allocation to potentially strengthen the risk-return profile of investment portfolios.

The Schroder Global Sustainable Equity Fund is likely to be appropriate for a consumer seeking capital growth for a small component of their portfolio, with a high or very high risk and return profile.

The Fund is unlikely to be suitable for a consumer seeking capital preservation or income. The Fund is also unlikely to be suitable for consumers seeking a standalone solution with a low risk and return profile or a short investment timeframe.

1Carbon Intensity Goal Objective: Schroders’ goal is that the Weighted Average Carbon Intensity of the Fund will be lower relative to the MSCI AC World ex Australia ex Tobacco Index Weighted Average Carbon Intensity. This will be achieved by selecting companies using Schroders’ own proprietary tools to identify and assess a company's environmental characteristics. More specifically, companies in the investment universe are assessed on their environmental profile including climate change related risks alongside broader environmental impacts and opportunities. The environmental characteristics of a company will impact the eligibility of the company for inclusion in the portfolio and sizing of its position in each Fund.
