Sustainable investment specialist Alquity Investment Management has announced the launch of three new funds, expanding its reach from Africa to Latin America, Asia and the Indian subcontinent.
The firm says that the Luxembourg-domiciled UCITs IV funds will adhere to the values at the heart of Alquity’s investment model: “attractive returns, sustainable investment and transforming lives.”
The firm, which was founded as an African equity specialist, pursues returns for investors through sustainable investments. However, it then seeks to give back, by donating a minimum of 25% of its fee revenue to create jobs in communities in the developing world through its charity partner, Opportunity International.
The London-based company says its pioneering approach has changed 12,000 lives to date.
Its Latin American fund will invest in equities and fixed income securities in Mexico, Chile, Colombia and Peru.
The Asia fund includes a 24% exposure to frontier markets like Vietnam and Myanmar – where returns are higher but there is added risk because the market is less developed.
Meanwhile, the Indian subcontinent fund will focus on ‘New India’ and fast-growing private sector companies, covering frontier markets including Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
“The launch of three new funds marks a step change in the global reach of Alquity’s investment model, building on the track record of our landmark Africa fund”, Paul Robinson, CEO of Alquity, said.
“With over three years of generating strong returns for our Africa fund investors and transforming lives in Africa behind us, we have created a team of top class fund managers to expand this success into Latin America, Asia and the Indian subcontinent.”
