Columbia Threadneedle Sustainable Fund Targets Resilient Returns

US-headquartered Columbia Threadneedle Investments’ new CT Sustainable Global Equity Income Fund is designed to offer “resilient income” with scope for capital growth while supporting positive change. According to the firm, the new fund looks to identify companies that will become “real contributors” to a sustainable future. It consists of a focused portfolio of 30-50 stocks and targets a yield in excess of its MSCI ACWI benchmark. The fund is built around sustainability themes to identify companies which stand to benefit from or contribute to trends in sustainable development, including energy transition, health and wellbeing and sustainable cities. Portfolio Manager Nick Henderson is part of Columbia Threadneedle’s specialist ESG Global Equities team and has a long history of managing global sustainable strategies. This team is part of the broader 25-strong global equities team and works closely with Columbia Threadneedle’s dedicated responsible investment specialists, which consists of over 40 people. “While there are numerous sustainable fund options on the market, we believe that income is the differentiator of our Sustainable Global Equity Income Fund at Columbia Threadneedle Investments. The fund’s focus on sustainability leaders will result in a differentiated portfolio to traditional global equity income funds,” said Henderson. “The fund harnesses our proven track record of investing in high dividend yield stocks and generating long term returns through a sustainable portfolio,” said Michaela Collet Jackson, Head of Distribution, EMEA, at Columbia Threadneedle Investments.
