Sustainable investing – the past, the present and the future

The last decade has seen huge developments in sustainability across much of the globe, and this is having a growing influence on the way investments are managed. The key change was the growing realisation that applying ESG factors and looking at sustainable themes was beneficial for returns – it doesn’t require investors to make costly choices. But what do the coming years have in store? Mike Fox examines how sustainability will develop over the next coming years.

    Mike Fox, Head of Sustainable Investments
    The terminology can be confusing – what is the difference between sustainable and responsible, for example?

So Mike Fox describes the sustainable investing landscape and explains the benefit of doing right rather than avoiding the bad.

  • Panel Discussion - Strategies of Income Funds Recorded: Sep 10 2019 63 mins
    Kandarp Acharya, Wells Capital Management | Justin Simler | Etienne Vincent, BNP Paribas AM | Ewan McAlpine, RLAM
    Multi asset income funds have seen increasing interest as companies need better returns on cash; schemes become cash flow negative and individuals seek income in retirement. There are, however, many different approaches to generating an income including both fixed income and multi asset income approaches. These can have a focus on synthetic or natural income, and very different targets for income, capital growth and protection.

    This webinar will discuss topics that include:

    Is the demand for income likely to persist?
    Should income even matter?
    What is a sustainable level of income?
    What are the strengths and drawbacks of the different approaches?
    What are the risks of an income portfolio and how do you manage them?

    Moderated by Justin Simler - Consultant

  • RLAM Fixed Income - six monthly update Recorded: Jun 5 2019 24 mins
    Ewan McAlpine
    Senior Client Portfolio Manager, Ewan McAlpine, presents our six monthly update webinar. The clouds of uncertainty six months ago have anything but cleared. Against an increasingly lacklustre global economic backdrop, and with additional uncertainty in the UK and Europe around Brexit and more globally around US-China trade, fixed income assets and their returns have proved surprisingly resilient in general and market volatility is surprisingly low. But the nature of uncertainty means that the risks of volatility and poor performance even in the near term have not been removed. Find out what we consider to be the most appropriate strategies to see investors through this environment of mixed messages.
