The fund aims to provide investors with an “attractive yield” while capitalising on the increasing financial commitment to a low carbon economy.
It will invest in infrastructure projects that are being built to forge a sustainable path to energy security and build a greener economy. Investments will be within alternative energy, energy storage and the circular economy.
The fund is managed by Tommy Kristoffersen (pictured), a member of the multi-asset and European equities team. He said: “There is a gap in the market for investments with this level of ESG integration and focus, and the appetite for this type of product has grown immensely in recent years.”
The group said a distinct characteristic of the infrastructure asset class is exposure to inflation-linked income stream.
