Mediolanum launches thematic global equity fund

Global equity fundDublin-based Mediolanum Asset Management has launched a thematic global equities fund.

The Mediolanum Innovative Thematic Opportunities fund aims to achieve long-term capital appreciation through global exposure to a diversified portfolio of equity securities, including emerging markets, while applying a sustainable mindset.

Specialist thematic investing fund house Robeco will be the fund’s delegated portfolio manager.

Furio Pietribiasi, managing director of Mediolanum AM, said: “Our objective is to continuously provide our clients with optimal solutions and diversified portfolios that capture the best sustainable returns opportunities.

“Our new thematic investing offer seeks to identify the underlying growth drivers before they become lasting structural changes and disrupt our economies and societies in the next decade.

“We are also delighted to partner with Robeco, a true pioneer of thematic investing, and with a strong reputation in the ESG and sustainable investing space.”

The fund will invest in a global equity universe of approximately 3,000 names, focusing primarily on a maximum of 70 companies with a proven record of high returns on invested capital. The minimum investment in the sub-fund is €5,000.

Mediolanum had around €38 billion of assets under management as of October 2018.
