Janus Henderson Global Sustainable Equity

The fund invests in a concentrated portfolio of companies globally that have a positive impact on the society or the environment.

The fund will allocate to global equities, targeting those companies that demonstrate their leadership in social and environmental issues. Once the team have identified sustainability themes such as water management, energy efficiency or healthcare, they will then identify companies that play into these themes.

We like the fund as it has a well experienced management team with strong ESG integration into its investment process, including a negative screening to screen out the most controversial sectors. The managers invest in some of the most compelling themes with positive implications for the society and the environment.
