Smart Pension Backs AXA SDG Fund  

AXA Investment Managers (AXA IM) has launched a new global equity fund investing in companies making measurable, positive contributions to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The AXA ACT People & Planet Equity fund will support three themes that align with the SDGs – social progress, energy transition and biodiversity. Smart Pension, UK-based workplace pension provider, has committed an undisclosed amount to the fund. Paul Bucksey, Chief Investment Officer at Smart Pension, said: “We are focused on achieving the best outcomes for our members, helping them secure not just long-term financial growth but also a safer, healthier world in which they can enjoy retirement. Smart Pension’s flagship growth strategy has been fully invested in sustainable funds for a while now, which we expect will play a key role in achieving our 2040 net zero target. We are delighted to be extending our partnership with AXA IM as we seek to provide even more impactful options for our members.”
