M&G launches UK version of ethical multi-asset strategy

M&G launches UK version of ethical multi-asset strategy

M&G has launched a UK version of the sustainable multi-asset fund it launched in Luxembourg at the end of last year.  

The M&G Sustainable Allocation strategy is managed by Maria Municchi, deputy of the M&G Episode Income and Income Allocation funds, alongside Citywire AA-rated deputy Steven Andrew.

Municchi will invest in a diversified range of asset classes globally,  aiming for a total return of 4% to 8% a year over five-year periods. The fund will hold 20-80% in bonds, 20-60% in equities and zero to 20% in other assets.

The strategy initially launched in Luxembourg in December.

Municchi said: 'Financial returns should remain the foremost objective of investing, but the way in which we choose to invest can make a difference beyond just those returns.

'Some of the biggest challenges the world is facing, from climate change to population growth, from corruption to pollution, need addressing urgently. By considering how your investments might affect society and the environment, you can choose to contribute towards a sustainable future.'

Head of UK wholesale Andrew Watson said the firm was actively expanding its range of ESG-focused investment strategies to meet the growing demand for funds that offer strong returns, whilst allowing clients to align their investments more closely to their environmental and social values.
