Brunel Pension Partnership Limited (Brunel) has appointed Jupiter and Mirova as
additional co-managers on its pioneering Sustainable Equities portfolio.
The portfolio launched in 2020 with £1.2 billion in assets under management (AUM),
but AUM have since grown to £2.5 billion, as more Brunel clients have transitioned
funds. Brunel has therefore appointed further managers to take on a proportion of
the larger AUM and to support broader risk management.
“Following the growth of the fund, we received considerable interest in the new
mandates,” said David Jenkins, Portfolio Manager. “We are delighted to add these
two exceptional sustainable managers to the fund.”
The portfolio, which focuses on listed equities, retains the original purpose set by our
clients: to place ESG considerations at the forefront of the investment process, such
that managers positively pursue companies that will provide a benefit to society.
Jens Peers, CEO & CIO, Mirova US, said:
“In an ongoing effort to encourage greater investor engagement with strategies focused on sustainability, we are delighted to partner with Brunel. At Mirova we recognise that investors are aligning their beliefs with their investment outcomes, allocating capital to sustainable investment solutions. We look forward to working with Brunel to deliver Mirova’s innovative investment capabilities and proven track record to their clients and transitioning to a more sustainable global economy.”
Abbie Llewellyn-Waters, Head of Sustainable Investing, Jupiter, said:
“We are delighted that Brunel has selected our Global Sustainable Equity strategy as a partner in working towards our shared goal of transitioning to a more sustainable world. As long term investors, leveraging Jupiter’s thirty years of delivering sustainable investing solutions, we look to generate returns for scheme members that create long term value for three key stakeholders: planet, people and profit. It is clear to us that capital allocation has the potential to play an impactful role in addressing urgent environmental and social systemic challenges, and we look forward to working together with Brunel to achieve positive stakeholder outcomes.”
