Gender equality fund launched by Mirova

Paris-based investment boutique Mirova has launched a thematic equity fund concentrating solely on companies committed to “promoting gender equality and increasing women’s representation in top-level management.”

The Mirova Women Leaders Equity Fund aims to obtain the status of a socially responsible investment fund, granted subject to an audit by a certified body.

The fund will also adopt a sustainable investment approach, investing in line with goals set out by the Paris Climate Agreement.

According to the firm’s chief executive officer Philippe Zaouati, investors are looking for “clear investment solutions with a proven impact which are based on a strong economic rationale.”

“Strategies addressing diversity and gender equality fit into this category perfectly. These issues are a social and an economic priority,” he said.

Mirova is an affiliate of Natixis Investment Managers.
