UBP and Bain Capital partner on long/short ESG fund

Swiss-based Union Bancaire Privée (UBP) has launched an Article 8 ESG fund in partnership with Bain Capital Public Equity, an affiliate of Bain Capital.

The fund runs a long/short strategy and sits on UBP’s alternative Ucits platform, U Access.

Called the U Access (IRL) Bain Capital Global Equity LS Sustainable Ucits fund, UBP said the fund integrates ESG considerations into its investment process and offers investors exposure to market gains, while limiting losses in down markets.

The fund focuses on four sectors – consumers, financials, healthcare, and technology, media & telecoms. It is the latest addition to UBP’s alternative Ucits platform, which has more than $1 billion in assets under management, according to the firm.

Nicolas Faller, co-CEO asset management at UBP, said: “Sustainability analysis, having become critical to assessing companies’ health and future earnings potential, it was a logical progression to onboard such a strategy and we are proud to be partnering with Bain Capital, who have put sustainability at the heart of their investment philosophy.”
