In pursuit of green - taking a trip to America, our Global Sustainability Fund manager, David Harrison, detects a change in the air.  Suddenly US firms are taking their environmental and social responsibilities more seriously.  
Read the full report.

​We aim to deliver a greater total return than the FTSE World Index, after fees, over any five-year period. Total return means the return we receive from the value of our investments increasing (capital growth) plus the income we receive from our investments (dividend payments). We use the FTSE World Index as a target for our fund's return because we want to offer you higher returns than global stock markets.

We also compare our fund against the Investment Association (IA) Global sector to give you an indication of how we perform against other funds in our peer group. Like us, the funds in this sector invest globally, although most of them don’t invest using a sustainability framework.

Responsible capitalism in the US

During David Harrison’s (Rathbone Global Sustainability Fund manager) trip to the US, he found a country where responsible capitalism has truly taken off, where people are much more aware of the social and environmental costs of doing business. Much like other parts of the world, investing along environmental, social and governance (ESG) principles is clearly ascendant in the US.
