Hawksmoor Investment Management has broadened its model portfolio range with the launch of a global sustainable mandate.
The Sustainable World Balanced model portfolio will invest in companies that make a positive impact on society or the environment, as well as targeting companies exposed to positive themes, such as renewable energy or green transport.
Conversely, the fund will exclude companies that are operating in areas perceived to be damaging to the environment or society, such as armaments and gambling.
It will be run as a fund of funds with a medium risk profile, aiming to generate ‘competitive rates of return’ over the long-term through a blend of growth and income.
Hawksmoor senior fund analyst and portfolio manager James Clark said: ‘The Sustainable World Balanced model portfolio can utilise a growing universe of high quality funds, forming an innovative investment solution for ethically-minded clients of financial advisers.’
Jim Wood-Smith (pictured), chief investment officer for private clients and head of research, added: ‘The Sustainable World Balanced model portfolio helps to fill a huge gap for the ever-increasing number of clients wishing to invest sustainably and ethically.
‘We are very excited to be bringing this to the adviser marketplace.’
