Global Emerging Markets Impact

Investment Objective

To generate a positive impact to society and an attractive return to shareholders over the long term through investment in a carefully screened portfolio of emerging market equities.

Description

The Global Emerging Markets Impact strategy invests in public companies that intentionally and materially contribute to having a positive impact to society in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (“SDG”), including in five key areas: Climate Change, Health and Wellness, Responsible Consumption, Sustainable Infrastructure and Inclusion.

The strategy is driven by fundamental bottom-up stock analysis conducted by fund managers and analysts globally.  Each company in the strategy must offer a positive societal return, be managed in a sustainable way, and be an attractive investment from a financial perspective.  For a company to be eligible for investment the positive societal return and sustainability are independently assessed by our Impact Assessment Group, consisting of senior members of Schroders Sustainable Investment and Global Emerging Markets Equity teams.
