THE CLIMATE ASSETS FUND

The Climate Asset fund invests around the world with a focus on investment opportunities arising from the convergence of climate change, resource scarcity and population shifts.

The Quilter Cheviot Climate Assets Fund invests in companies that make a positive contribution to the world, with a strong underpinning of ethical values.

By investing in solutions to some of the world’s long-term challenges, investors can earn attractive returns from growing businesses involved in sustainability and environmental technologies. A growing population, rising middle class, and an increased need to clean up past pollution all provide strong tailwinds for the companies in the Quilter Cheviot Climate Assets Fund. You can learn more about the fund’s five themes in the articles below.
The Fund invests mainly in company shares but also includes exposure to government bonds to help protect the portfolio and alternative assets like renewable energy infrastructure. The fund favours high quality medium and large companies, helping to reduce the volatility of returns when compared to just investing in smaller companies.

The Fund has performed well over the long term – both in absolute terms and against its investment peer group. For more information on the fund performance, download the latest fund factsheet or contact an investment manager today.

The Climate Assets Fund also benefits from the work of Quilter Cheviot’s research team, which helps to identify new opportunities for investment and provides ongoing coverage of the investment in the Climate Assets Fund. The collaboration between Claudia, Caroline and the research team has helped to deliver strong performance since the launch of the fund.

For those of us who work in the sustainable investing space, it’s all too easy to forget just how jargon-filled and confusing it can be, even at the best of times. From a client perspective, having an adviser that is confident explaining the various sustainable investing options is crucial, but this is no easy feat.
