LOIM launches sustainable private credit strategy

With funding from the Environment Agency Pension Fund

Lombard Odier Investment Managers has launched a sustainable private credit strategy with funding from the Environment Agency Pension Fund.

The LOIM Sustainable Private Credit strategy looks to lend to North American industries targeting the climate transition, and is classified as Article 9 under SFDR.

Ritesh Bamania, head of UK and Ireland institutional sales at Lombard Odier, said: “Many clients have embraced private debt to diversify away from equities and shift toward stable cashflows. Our strategy seeks to deliver both these traditional objectives and a sustainability tilt to help accelerate the transition to net zero.”
