Sustainable Investing - Royal London Asset Management (RLAM)

RLAM’s Sustainable Investing Team has extensive experience managing sustainable funds and their approach has been recognised with a number of industry awards, such as the ones below won last year.  

RLAM’s suite of five sustainable funds seek to invest in companies that are well-positioned to benefit from products and services that help solve major environmental and social challenges and manage their Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) risks better than average.

Our distinctive approach integrates the consideration of ESG issues alongside financial analysis throughout the investment process. This combination of factors is central to the team’s track record of long-term outperformance. We also actively engage with the companies in which we invest to champion best practice on behalf of our clients, challenging companies on issues such as environmental policy and corporate governance standards.

Important information

Past performance is not a guide to future performance. The value of investments and the income from them is not guaranteed and may go down as well as up and investors may not get back the amount originally invested. The level of income (yield) from a fund is not fixed and may go up and down. For funds that use derivatives, their use may be beneficial, however, they also involve specific risks. Derivatives may alter the economic exposure of a fund over time, causing it to deviate from the performance of the broader market.
