The Leaders Strategy seeks to achieve sustainable, above market returns over the longer term by investing globally in companies that are developing innovative solutions to resource challenges in environmental markets. These markets address a number of long term macro-economic themes: growing populations, rising living standards, increasing urbanization, rising consumption, and depletion of limited natural resources. Investments are made in companies which have >20% of their underlying revenue generated by sales of products or services in environmental markets. Leaders is a fossil fuel free strategy.
Powerful drivers – growing population, rising living standards and finite natural resources – have triggered above average growth for a diverse set of companies focused on resource efficiency.
The fund employs a research-intensive bottom-up stock selection process to find the leading companies in increasingly important global environmental markets.
Companies providing environmental solutions and net carbon reductions will help lead the transition to a sustainable global economy.
