Sustainable Equity

Investing in the present for our future

Sustainability is at the forefront of change across the globe

Increased climate-related events and demand for resources mean that change is being shaped with sustainability in mind. These global challenges, and increased appetite to do things differently, make innovation and sustainable development more important than ever before.

The opportunity for investors

Three generational trends impacting every sector of the global economy.


Businesses and processes are rapidly shifting from analogue to digital with the aim of improving efficiencies. To facilitate this, three of the largest chip manufacturers in the world have pledged to build more than $300 billion of new capacity in coming years. Businesses in every sector will be impacted by digitalisation – for example through artificial intelligence.

Electrification is key to decoupling fossil fuels from the global economy. Renewables are set to account for over 90% of global electricity capacity expansion by 2028 to enable future technologies which are increasingly being powered by electricity.

The transition to a low carbon economy will impact all sectors, both positively and negatively. The world is set to add as much renewable power in the next 5 years as it did in the past 20 years, offering huge opportunities for investors. On the flip side, with up to £5 trillion of MSCI World market capitalisation at risk of being disrupted, it is important to stay on the right side of this transition.
