Edentree Responsible and Sustainable Short Dated Bond Fund
Capital preservation with an income in excess of cash is hard to find, yet there is a fund delivering consistent, stable income with minimal credit risk that only invests responsibly and sustainably.
Our EdenTree Responsible and Sustainable Short Dated Bond Fund seeks to invest primarily in high quality bonds, those with an investment-grade credit rating of A or better, with a portfolio duration averaging around two years.

Our Responsible & Sustainable Short Dated Bond Fund
The Rise of Social and Sustainable Bonds
We have written at length in other EdenTree Insights on a range of crucial ESG themes and their impacts on the environment, business and society. However, this insight seeks to explore how that change can be funded as, without capital,
many of the necessary shifts needed for a responsible and sustainable future will not be possible.
