Vontobel Fund II – Global Impact Equities

This is a brand-new strategy run by Elena Tedesco, who previously worked at Hermes. The basis of the fund comes from the Clean Tech Fund which Vontobel have run since 2008, and carries the same mission and vision. They want to look at the challenges facing the environment and society, and be able to measure the impact of the products and services they invest in. They believe that the share price of a company should improve because of the solution they offer.

They have broadened out the pillars with which they invest in to include:

Innovative Industry and Technology – make processes simpler and cleaner
Clean Water – ensure access and improve quality
Clean Energy – replace fossil fuels with renewables
Sustainable Cities – making cities smarter and better connected
Sustainable Food – harvesting opportunities from food and farming
Equal Opportunities – raising standards of living for underserved populations
