Speaker(s): Louis Stevens
Sustainability is an increasingly important theme for today’s consumers. Companies are expected to adopt more socially responsible behaviour, and a growing proportion of investors are keen for their financial assets to have a positive impact on the wider world.
At Liontrust, identifying emerging trends and long-term themes is the cornerstone of the Sustainable Investment team’s process. The focus is on companies looking to help in the transition to a cleaner, healthier and safer world: many of these outcomes have been delivered by the power of capitalism and the creativity of businesses generating strong profit growth and investment returns. It is these innovative stocks in which our Sustainable Future funds have invested for two decades, and we feel most investors underestimate the speed, scale and persistency of such companies within our economy.
