Jamie Jenkins, Head of Responsible Global Equities
For nearly 20 years our Responsible Global Equity Strategy has been centred on sustainable companies that are proactively and effectively managing their environmental, social and governance (ESG) opportunities and risks. Jamie Jenkins discusses our philosophy and his experience in deploying an active ESG approach that we believe can deliver improved risk-adjusted returns for investors.
Join Rob Burdett as he discusses 10 eventful years for the F&C MM Lifestyle Funds – the industry’s first risk-targeted funds. It’s been a decade in which the credit crunch, a global economic downturn and a European debt crisis were just three of the key events impacting on markets. 10 years in which the funds delivered attractive investment returns and crucially, did so within defined risk parameters. And a decade in which they’ve provided a robust and reliable tool for your advice process in an increasingly stringent regulatory regime. He will also review the first quarter and the team's current outlook.
