EdenTree Launches Two New Funds
Focused on the Green Revolution and Bridging the Impact Finance Gap 

24 January 2022

Press Release

EdenTree Investment Management (“EdenTree”), the specialist responsible and sustainable asset manager, has today launched two new funds that give investors the opportunity to contribute to a more sustainable global economy. 

The EdenTree Green Future Fund (GFF) will be managed by Charlie Thomas, EdenTree’s Chief Investment Officer, and Tom Fitzgerald, Fund Manager, has been designed to help investors position their portfolios to take advantage of the opportunities presented by the transition to a more sustainable, low-carbon economy. The managers, who have over 30 years combined experience in sustainable and responsible investing, cite unprecedented demand from investors for future-focused portfolios that seek to address environmental challenges.

The EdenTree Global Impact Bond (GIB) Fund, which aims to produce positive financial returns through responsible, sustainable and ethical fixed income instruments, will be co-managed by David Katimbo-Mugwanya, Senior Fund Manager, and Michael Sheehan, Fund Manager, who bring 15 years’ combined investment experience. The managers will operate with a remit that reflects both the global investment universe and the international nature of the challenges that the fund seeks to address.

The core philosophy of the fund is to drive capital towards issuers that make a net-positive impact, leveraging public debt markets to help finance entities investing in projects that tangibly benefit the environment and societies around the world whilst operating responsibly and sustainably.

The two new funds will complement EdenTree’s existing range of products that invest responsibly and sustainably across a variety of equity, fixed income and multi-asset strategies. All investment decisions in the Green Future Fund and Global Impact Bond Fund will be subject to EdenTree’s rigorous responsible and sustainable criteria, with the fund managers working closely with the Responsible Investment team.

“The major shifts we are experiencing in the global economy today present an exciting opportunity for investors to positively influence the world we live in tomorrow,” says Charlie Thomas, Chief Investment Officer, EdenTree Investment Management. “These new funds represent a new avenue for investors of all generations and backgrounds who are looking to future-proof their portfolios and generate investment performance with responsible and sustainable principles.”
