Fund News: The GSI Sustainable Value Fund
It’s been a busy and exciting first half of the year for the Global Sustainable Value Fund. Thank you to everyone who has supported our growth to date.
From a start of £11 million in January this year, the fund now stands at over £40 million, an increase of almost 250%.
Interest has been high from a number of advisors, and in response to client demand, we are adding an accumulating share class to the fund.
We expect this new share class to be available early in the third quarter.
Existing clients may switch from the distributing A Class to the accumulating B Class free of costs at the fund level.
However, please check with your platform, as some may charge for the switch.
Albion Strategic Consulting help build bespoke centralised investment propositions for advisory firms. They assist with governance oversight and deliver a rolling programme of client communication and education.
Tim Hale, Albion’s Managing Director, provided a Q&A between Max Tennant and Garrett Quigley within their latest governance update. This piece covered;
How sustainability has been led by client need,
what the challenges were in applying sustainability to a factor-based investment model,
and how GSI see future development in this area.
