We’ve all been hearing a lot more about sustainability from fund groups in the last few months with many launching new funds, but what exactly is it? Could sustainability be a marketing ploy, a new language to describe existing or old behaviour or is something a little more profound happening? On the panel to discuss:

  • Jaime Ramos Martin, Global Equities Fund Manager, Aviva Investors
  • Ama Seery, Sustainability Analyst, Janus Henderson Investors
  • Randeep Somel, Fund Manager, M&G Climate Solutions Fund, M&G Investments
  • Hannah Simons, Head of Sustainability Strategy, Schroders

Learning outcomes:

  1. The rise of the circular economy and its implications for investors
  2. Sustainable funds: marketing ploy or truly different from mainstream portfolios
  3. The role of negative screening in sustainability funds
