1. Sustainable Growth Equity Fund

    Sustainable Growth Equity Fund

  2. Overview

    To produce capital growth over the long term by investing primarily in global equities. Performance will be measured against the MSCI ACWI Index.

    Investment Proposition

    Sustainable Growth invests in companies which are sustainable in both senses of the word, delivering enduring growth and enduring good. For growth to endure, companies must be resilient to a range of economic and political environments, and capable of achieving a decade or more of profitable growth. To deliver enduring good, they must make a positive difference to society, either through impactful products or services or through influential business practices that inspire wider change.
