EQ Investors expands responsible investment range with launch of the Future Leaders Portfolios

EQ Investors (EQ), has highlighted its commitment to sustainability with the launch of a new range of low-cost responsible investment portfolios, available from today.

The EQ Future Leaders [1] range includes eight different risk levels and combines investors’ growing preference for socially responsible portfolios and the increasing popularity of low-cost passive funds.

Managed to provide a lower carbon footprint, the portfolios focus on the most responsible companies in each sector by only including those with a strong environmental and social focus. The Future Leaders [1] approach contributes to sustainable solutions with overweight positions in healthcare, clean energy and green bonds.

The Future Leader Portfolios [1] are managed by a team led by Damien Lardoux, Head of Impact Investing at EQ.

“We’ve been a pioneer in the impact investing [2] space over the last eight years. The launch of the Future Leaders Portfolios sees us building on that reputation whilst responding to the changing market we work in to deliver a very competitively priced multi-asset passive solution.

“Our ambition is to evolve the portfolios as the universe of passive strategies increases – this is just the start of the journey.”

John Spiers, Chief Executive of EQ added:

“We have seen increasing demand from investors with a real emphasis on sustainable considerations but with a low-cost passive mindset. With its experience in impact investing, we believe our responsible investing team, led by Damien is perfectly placed to deliver a market-leading solution.”
