The Fund

The Irish-domiciled Fund, managed by Peter Michaelis and Simon Clements, aims to deliver income and capital growth over the long term (5 years or more) using the Sustainable Future process and investing in a combination of global equities, bonds and cash. The investment process uses a thematic approach to identify the key structural growth trends that will shape the global economy of the future and the fund managers then seek to invest in well run companies whose products and operations capitalise on these transformative changes. This is an Article 9 fund under SFDR.

Past performance is not a guide to future performance. The value of an investment and the income generated from it can fall as well as rise and is not guaranteed. You may get back less than you originally invested.

More about the team
Meet the tea

“Over our first 20 years of managing the SF funds, our investments have been successful because they have provided something society needs.”

Our Investment Process

The investment process seeks to generate strong returns from investing in companies aiming to deliver profits through positive social and environmental impacts. The fund managers look at the world through the prism of three mega trends – Better resource efficiency (cleaner), Improved health (healthier) and Greater safety and resilience (safer) – and then 20 themes within these.
If a company has significant exposure to one of the themes, the fund managers verify how sustainable the rest of its activities are. For each company, the fund managers determine the key ESG factors that are important indicators of future success and assess how well these are managed, via the proprietary Liontrust Sustainability Matrix.
Companies in which the fund managers invest will have robust business fundamentals with a proven ability to deliver high returns on equity (RoE) through sustaining margins and asset turnover. Typically, these companies have a maintainable competitive advantage through scale, technology or business model.
The fund managers invest in well-run companies whose products and operations capitalise on the transformative changes the Liontrust Sustainable Investment team has highlighted, may benefit financially from them and score well on ESG, business fundamentals and valuation. The managers believe identifying these powerful themes and investing in exposed companies can make for attractive and sustainable investments.

Performance

As the share class has been in existence for less than one discrete year as at the previous quarter end, there is insufficient data to provide an indication of past performance.

Fund insights

Key features of the Fund

The Fund aims to achieve capital growth over the long term (five years or more) by investing globally in sustainable securities. The Fund will only invest in equity and debt securities issued by global companies that provide or produce sustainable products and services, as well as equity and debt securities of issuers that have a progressive approach to the management of environmental, social and governance issues. The Fund may also invest in cash and Money Market Instruments. Allocations to equities, bonds and cash will vary over time depending on market circumstances. Asset allocation limits will, in normal circumstances, remain in line with the following ranges: Equity securities – 40-60%, Debt securities – 20-50%, Cash – 0-20%. While the Fund will invest predominantly in developed markets, it may also invest up to 20% in emerging market securities. At times the Investment Adviser may decide to hold a more concentrated portfolio, and it is possible that a substantial portion of the Fund could be invested in cash or cash equivalents. The Fund is permitted to use derivatives for the purposes of efficient portfolio management, investment and hedging purposes.

Key Risks 

Past performance is not a guide to future performance. The value of an investment and the income generated from it can fall as well as rise and is not guaranteed. You may get back less than you originally invested. The issue of units/shares in Liontrust Funds may be subject to an initial charge, which will have an impact on the realisable value of the investment, particularly in the short term. Investments should always be considered as long term.

 

Investment in the Fund involves foreign currencies and may be subject to fluctuations in value due to movements in exchange rates. The value of fixed income securities will fall if the issuer is unable to repay its debt or has its credit rating reduced. Generally, the higher the perceived credit risk of the issuer, the higher the rate of interest.
