Performance that does not have to cost the planet

Every time you invest, you have an environmental impact. Make yours a positive one.

In less than 30 years’ time, the planet will be home to nine billion human beings. This is certain to put even more pressure on the environment, testing it to breaking point.

Environmental awareness is now widespread amongst consumers, governments and the private sector. Their converging interests, technological advances and increased health concerns, are underpinning a global drive to safeguard the world’s natural resources.

The Pictet-Global Environmental Opportunities fund is an unconstrained global equity fund which invests in firms that help solve environmental challenges. Companies tackling environmental problems are growing fast. We believe that this should lead to attractive capital gains while making a positive contribution towards a more sustainable world.

Investing Responsibly for Income

The Baillie Gifford Responsible Global Equity Income Fund was the first fund of its type in the Global Equity Income sector. Clients’ needs are ever-changing and multifaceted which can be a balancing act for advisors. We will explain how through good active management, income and responsible investing need not be mutually exclusive client outcomes. We will draw upon our own experience of engaging with companies and investing in line with the principles embodied in the United Nations Global Compact.

Toby Ross, Co-Head of Global Income Growth, Baillie Gifford
