Jupiter launches “ecology” fund

Jupiter, the London-based asset manager, claims its latest sustainable fund is a pioneering product.

The Jupiter Global Ecology Diversified Sicav fund, a sub-fund of the Jupiter Global Fund Sicav, will invest in stocks and bonds of companies which “stand to benefit from the transition to a sustainable economy”, Jupiter says.

Jupiter adds that the fund’s exposure is to long-term sustainable growth trends with lower-volatility and greater income generation potential when compared to traditional, pure equity approaches.

The roughly 60% in fixed income, including ‘green bonds’ and convertibles, will be managed by Rhys Petheram, and the stock component will be co-managed by Charlie Thomas and Abbie Llewellyn-Waters from Jupiter’s environmental and sustainable investing team.

Thomas said: “The sustainable investment sector is becoming increasingly mature across asset classes, we believe we can apply our expertise in a way that will resonate with clients in delivering a diversified, lower-volatility and income-generating approach to a compelling global growth theme.”
