Amundi fund aims to address rising ESG value and market volatility

French asset manager Amundi has launched a multi-asset fund combining a conservative strategy with environmental, social and governance (ESG) investing.

According to the firm, which manages nearly €1.5 trillion of assets, the Amundi Funds Multi-Asset Sustainable Future fund aims to confront rising market uncertainty.

It will invest across a broad range of fixed income assets – though mainly in euro denominated investment grade corporate and government bonds – and global equities, which are up to 40% of portfolio allocation.

Joerg Moshuber, is lead portfolio manager, along with Enrico Bovalini, head of balanced strategies.

Portfolio management is based on an Austrian-domiciled Ucits ethical balanced fund launched back in 1986 and Moshuber said it invests “only in issuers that are truly committed to building a better future”.

*An ESG report earlier this week said investors following the responsible investment trend focus less on returns from social and governance investing than they do on environmental opportunities.
