Dimensional Fund Advisors has launched two funds; the Emerging Markets Sustainability Core Equity Fund and the Global Sustainability Short Fixed Income Fund.
Using the firm’s systematic investing approach, the funds will invest in companies targeting a meaningful reduction in exposure to companies with high greenhouse gas emissions intensity and potential emissions from fossil fuel reserves.
They join the group’s suite of sustainability funds, which includes the Global Sustainability Core Equity Fund (which invests in developed markets) and the Global Sustainability Fixed Income Fund.
“We now offer investors a more sustainable approach to systematic investing in global equity and bond markets,” said John Romiza (pictured), co-CEO of Dimensional UK. “The new funds represent more tools to implement Dimensional’s sustainable approach right across an investor’s global balanced portfolio.”
