After a successful maiden year, Milltrust has successfully restructured its leading Climate Impact Asia strategy on its Emerging Markets platform in response to investor requests.
The fund continues its pioneering climate impact strategy, actively managed in partnership with WWF-Hong Kong, and has renewed its commitment to making meaningful fee-based donations to WWF’s conservation programs in Asia focused on climate change, biodiversity loss and species extinction.
The fund strategy has been one of the top-performing Asia Pacific environmental impact strategies in 2020, earning the Environmental Finance 2020 Award for Impact Initiative of the Year in Asia, and a nominated finalist for the Pension & Investments Brightest Idea Award 2020.
Alexander Kalis, Portfolio Manager and Chairman of the CIAF’s Investment Advisory Committee said: “The urgency for Climate impact investments in Asia has never been greater. With mixed messages on China’s climate ambitions coming from its recent 14th Five Year Plan despite the country’s pledge to become carbon neutral by 2060, we must redouble our efforts to back the leading companies in the region that actively work towards mitigating or reducing the effects of climate change”
He added: “We have the unique privilege of benefiting from WWF’s climate and environmental expertise to achieve genuine impact while continuing to deliver a strong investment track record for our investors”.
