The Liontrust Sustainable Investment team is headed by Peter Michaelis and manages a broad range of 12 funds that invest in the shares and bonds of companies that are contributing the global transition to a sustainable future. The team has extensive knowledge and insights, having managed sustainable funds since 2001 – one of the longest track records in the sustainable sector.
The team seeks to generate strong returns while benefiting society through:
Identifying long-term structural growth trends, such as technological and medical advancements, that will shape the global economy of the future.
Investing in companies exposed to these powerful trends that have a positive impact and can make for attractive and sustainable investments.
What is also distinct about the Liontrust approach is the fact that all the elements of sustainable investment are integrated within a single team.
The team does not have separate fund management and environmental, social and governance (ESG) divisions, for example. Instead, every team member is responsible for all aspects of financial and ESG analysis relating to an investment decision.
Remember, your investments may fall as well as rise and you may not get back the amount you originally invested.
