GIB AM Impact and Engagement Report 202203/23 GIB Asset Management
GIB Asset Management publishes its 2022 Impact and Engagement Report
London: 02/03/2022 GIB Asset Management (“GIB AM”), the UK-based sustainable asset manager, announced the publication of its 2022 Impact and Engagement Report.
The report covers its two equity funds: GIB AM Emerging Markets Active Engagement Fund (Article 8) and GIB AM Sustainable World Fund (Article 9), as well as its Fixed Income Fund: GIB AM Sustainable World Corporate Bond Fund (Article 9)
The report explains how each Fund approaches impact and engagement, and provides information on both over 2022.
Katherine Garrett-Cox, CEO, GIB Asset Management “As a sustainable-led asset manager, we seek to generate superior investment performance through deep integration of sustainability into investment decision-making. While retaining flexibility, we look for enduring, long-term impact; our report reflects just that. It was evident that we made significant progress with our engagement efforts in 2022, with, for example, 50 total counts of engagement for the GIB AM Sustainable World Fund, and 45 total counts of engagement for the GIB AM Emerging Markets Active Engagement Fund. Given that both funds are in the early stages, we have seen some meaningful achievements in our engagement activities. Our Fixed Income team have dedicated their time to building an approach that ensures sustainability is at the core of every investment decision. We have decided to include this Fund in our report to set off as we intend to carry on, being transparent.
The Sustainable World family of Funds uses a thematic approach to identify the great challenges of our time, their potential solutions, and the scale of the resulting financial opportunity for companies providing those products and services. In this report, we highlight examples, such as Novo Nordisk treating 34 million patients with diabetic care products, or CEMEX’s low carbon cements and concretes to help us meet net zero targets.
Our team has considerable experience in sustainable investing and that has been deployed to create innovative, sustainable solutions for our clients to support their long-term investment objectives.”
