Invesco has launched a new multi-asset fund that will invest in companies transitioning to a low-carbon economy. The Sustainable Global Income Fund, classified under SFDR as an Article 9 fund, will back companies and governments with strong climate characteristics and exclude companies that take a certain amount of their revenue from non-sustainable sources. Alexandra Ivanova, Fund Manager, said: “This Fund is not a green bond fund or a low carbon fund. It is a fund that invests in companies that use very active stock picking and securities selection. We are seeking to finance companies that can make a difference, utilising our in-depth macro and credit research to identify companies with strong climate attributes relative to their peers.” The fund is managed by Invesco’s fixed interest team responsible for over £25 billion in AUM, as well as the global equity team that manages over £5 billion in AUM. Oliver Bilal, Head of Emea Distribution for Invesco, said: “The Invesco Sustainable Global Income Fund is a perfect addition to our existing range, which includes a global income strategy and an environmental bond strategy. “We believe the new fund provides a good entry point for investors looking for an investment that supports not only their income goal but who want to invest in companies to support the transition to a low carbon economy,” he added.
