Sarasin Sustainable Equity Global Real Estate

A fund that invests in ethically screened securities of real estate companies globally with a focus on sustainable buildings.

The fund will invest in the securities of real estate companies globally, with a view to benefit from the long-term trends impacting real estate development and management, including climate change, scarcity of resources, demographic changes and urbanisation. To play these trends, the fund invests in companies that take ecological and social sustainability issues into account in their business operations with a particular focus on the reduction of energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.

We like the fund as it gives us access to the real estate asset class, which is otherwise unable to invest in within a sustainable framework, as well as having a well-resourced team that has strong expertise within property.
