Introducing the Schroder Sustainable Global Core Fund

The Schroder Sustainable Global Core Fund is a quantitative global equity fund. The objective of the fund is to outperform the MSCI World ex Australia ex Tobacco Index (net dividends reinvested) after fees with low index-relative risk across a broad range of market environments.

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

Focused on value and quality to deliver long-term outperformance

Our research suggests that there is a long-term premium available to investors focused on valuations and on business quality. We seek to exploit this opportunity through the Fund's broad investment universe of over 10,000 stocks globally.

To find under-valued securities, the value of a security is analysed using a wide range of metrics, including dividends, cashflows, earnings and assets. Our ‘Quality’ strategy involves analysing companies for profitability, stability, financial strength, governance and potential for structural growth.

Why Schroders?

Rigorous process identifies the best investment opportunities

Accessing a broad opportunity set across countries, sectors and market capitalisations provides investors with a diversified ESG conscious fund. This deep diversification seeks to minimise stock-specific risk without sacrificing conviction.

Stock selection is driven by bottom-up evaluation of a company’s ESG characteristics, stock fundamentals and other metrics. Sector, country and regional allocations build from our stock selection process – we only invest where we see the best opportunities.

We look at both a company’s profits and how it generates them

Alongside risk and return, we consider a third dimension – ESG risk – which is embedded into our sustainable fund investment process. Only by considering these three pillars together can we uncover a company’s real investment potential.

1Carbon Intensity Goal Objective: Schroders’ goal is that the Weighted Average Carbon Intensity of the Fund will be lower relative to the MSCI 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.
