Manulife extends climate strategy to Europe

Manulife Global Fund - Global Climate Action launches

Manulife Investment Management has launched a global climate fund in Europe giving institutional investors access to its global climate action strategy launched in Canada last year.

The Manulife Global Fund – Global Climate Action will invest in companies “likely to significantly reduce emissions,” head of Manulife Investment Management’s fundamental equity team Patrick Blais said, and those that have incorporated science-based targets.  

“European investors are very conscious of how their actions affect the environment and demand innovative investment solutions that focus on and measure climate action,” Blais added.

The firm has also extended its Sustainable Asia Equity Fund to European investors.
