Liontrust has expanded its sustainable investment capabilities by introducing the GF Sustainable Future Global Growth Fund.
The launch is in response to the rising demand for green investment across continental Europe.
The Irish-domiciled vehicle leverages the same process that is utilised for running the firm’s Global Growth strategy targeted at UK investors.
The new strategy will be overseen by Simon Clements and Peter Michaelis.
Commenting on the new offering, Liontrust CEO John Ions said: “There is growing demand for sustainable investing as an increasing number of people care about how they make their money as well as how much money they make.
“This is an ever-more competitive area and we are enjoying rising interest in our team and their funds because of their rigorous investment process, 18 years of managing sustainable investments and the successful long-term track record.
“Our new fund will enable European investors to benefit from the team’s experience, knowledge and proven capability through its global growth strategy.”
The Liontrust Sustainable Investment team, which runs 10 UK-domiciled funds, has increased its assets by two-fold from £2.3bn in April 2017 to £4.6bn at the end of September 2019.
Notably, last month, Liontrust completed the acquisition of Neptune Investment Management, in a deal worth £40m.
