  • Sustainable Credit: a credibility vs convenience conundrum Feb 3 2021 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Shalin Shah, Matt Franklin and Kate Parker
    As ‘sustainable’ investing gains ever more traction in fixed income markets, asset managers appear to be engaged in an arms race to demonstrate their ESG credentials to asset owners. Signs are emerging that credit investors may be favouring convenience over credibility, such as blindly buying bonds with ESG labels or relying on incomplete third party data. Shalin Shah, manager of RLAM’s range of Sustainable credit funds, alongside Senior Credit Analyst, Matthew Franklin, will demonstrate how a more bespoke and fixed income specific approach to ESG integration can help capture inefficiencies present in credit markets, with no compromise on either returns or sustainability.

    Building on RLAM’s long established heritage in Sustainable Investing, they will also talk about the real opportunity to provide capital to critical social and environmental sectors that are largely inaccessible to investors across other asset classes.
  • Royal London Global Equity Select - The best of growth and value Recorded: Jan 20 2021 44 mins
    Peter Rutter
    The RL Global Equity Select Fund’s investment approach is used to differentiate stocks across their respective lifecycles, in order to build a relatively neutral style portfolio. Whilst a portfolio with either a distinct growth or value bias enhances risk exposure, this investment approach may help negate that by offering idiosyncratic stock picking which can work across multiple market environments.

    The fund has a proven track record with a style agnostic approach, which distinguishes it from its peers.

    Listen to find out more about how the lifecycle concept is put into practice, plus hear about practical stock examples and Peter Rutter’s views on the current market.
