11/09/2019

Schroders is today unveiling its Global Transformation Range, a suite of funds designed to give clients active long-term exposure to powerful and persistent themes that are transforming our planet and daily lives.

This range of  thematic funds aims to uncover and invest in companies with the ingenuity to innovate and address the imbalances in our world, whether between populations and resources or between supply and demand within individual markets.  

The Global Transformation Range of funds will seek out long term opportunities within these themes such as urbanisation, climate change, disruption, healthcare innovation and energy transition.

Schroders’ thematic approach will provide clients with a global and unconstrained opportunity set which can form a long-term part of their core, active portfolios.

This approach is underpinned by Schroders’ extensive investment resources including the data analysis expertise of its Data Insights Unit.
