Global and European Sustainable Equity Strategies

A world in transition
We believe that 2020 marked an important turning point for companies and investors alike. Rapid societal and technological change is driving a corporate evolution, creating some powerful investment themes.

We believe that the companies that are best-placed to benefit from this disruption are quality businesses where sustainability reinforces competitive advantage.

Our global and european sustainable equity strategies offer investors exposure to our best ideas and we believe that our focused, expert teams are well-positioned to seek out tomorrow’s leaders.
Our focused, 7-strong team of investment professionals has a wealth of expertise, with an average of 20 years’ experience and Citywire AA ratings for each of our three Portfolio Managers. The team have managed in excess of $10bn across the two strategies over roughly 16 years.

The team complements Neuberger Berman’s commitment to developing and pursuing ESG goals. As an active manager, we have a long-standing belief that ESG factors are an important driver of investment returns.

We are a member of the PRI 2020 Leaders’ Group, awarded to only 20 of 2,100+ PRI investment manager signatories. We also earned top scores across all UN PRI categories for our ESG approach for the second year in a row.

Key Risks

Counterparty Risk: The risk that a counterparty will not fulfil its payment obligation for a trade, contract or other transaction, on the due date.

Currency Risk: Investments in a currency other than the base currency of the portfolio are exposed to currency risk. Fluctuations in exchange rates may affect the return on investment. If the currency of the portfolio is different from your local currency, then you should be aware that due to exchange rate fluctuations the performance may increase or decrease if converted into your local currency.

Liquidity Risk: The risk that the portfolio may be unable to sell an investment readily at its fair market value.

Market Risk: The risk of a change in the value of a position as a result of underlying market factors, including among other things, the overall performance of companies and the market perception of the global economy.

Operational Risk: The risk of direct or indirect loss resulting from inadequate or failed processes, people and systems including those relating to the safekeeping of assets or from external events.

Sustainable Risk: The strategy may focus on investments in companies that relate to certain sustainable development themes and demonstrate adherence to environmental, social and corporate governance practices. This may mean the universe of securities from which the strategy can invest in may be smaller than that of other strategies and may underperform the market as a result.
