We have been at the forefront of responsible investment ever since launching Europe’s first ethically-screened fund in 1984. In the past 30 years, we have developed responsible investment into a core capability. Starting as a single innovative equity fund, our responsible investment solutions now include a range of funds across asset classes.
Thirty years after launching Europe’s first
ethically screened fund we have re-launched our responsible investment
capability, bringing together a broad range of market leading investment
solutions. The fund range name change took effect on the 10 October 2014 and
included the following funds:
Stewardship ICVC name will also change Stewardship Investment funds ICVC to
F&C Responsible Investment Funds ICVC
Each of our Responsible funds are underpinned by a comprehensive process that employs the expertise and experience of three separate teams:
Investment management - our Responsible funds are managed just like any of our mainstream portfolios with the exception that each company is screened against a set of ethical and environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria before we can invest in it. Our fund managers research individual companies and investment themes and are responsible for actively managing the portfolios in order to generate outperformance compared to a standard unscreened benchmark.
Governance & Sustainable Investment Team - We have one of the largest dedicated research teams of its kind in Europe, with extensive experience across a range of ESG issues and sectors. Responsibilities include: researching emerging ESG issues to help inform policy development, reviewing companies against the ethical criteria, voting at company meetings and engaging with companies, regulators and other stakeholders to improve corporate governance and corporate sustainability performance.
Responsible Investment Advisory Council - a six-strong independent Responsible Investment Advisory Council oversees the screening criteria within which the funds are managed. The Council is made up of experts in a range of ethical and sustainability matters. The Council is presided by Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, and chaired by Howard Pearce, a leading figure in the responsible investment world.
