16th October, 2020
We are pleased to announce that the Davy Low Carbon Equity Fund (“the Fund”) has been shortlisted by the Investment Week Sustainable & ESG Investment Awards 2020 in the following category.
“Best Environmental/Climate Change Fund”
This award is open to equity funds which invest predominantly in clean energy, environmental or climate change projects or companies. Now in its 13th year, the Sustainable & ESG Awards have added this category to reflect the evolving field of sustainable investing.
Along with submissions, the first round of judging was based on a mixture of quantitative and qualitative analysis using resources from third party providers.
The investment objective of the Davy Low Carbon Equity Fund is to invest in companies which are leaders in tackling climate change in their given sectors, while avoiding the fossil fuel industry. The fund does not invest in companies which explore, extract and/or profit from the burning of fossil fuels.
Note: The shortlist and eventual winners are decided by an entirely quantitative process, which reflects the two primary aims of hedge funds – to manage volatility and to deliver positive returns for investors.
