Nomura Funds Ireland – Global Sustainable Equity Fund
Our Investment Approach
The Nomura Global Sustainable Equity Fund is a concentrated global equity strategy that seeks to deliver strong risk adjusted returns through investing in companies that have the greatest total positive impact on society.
The strategy has a strong bias towards quality and does not invest in companies that have a clear negative impact on our planet and society. The strategy capitalizes on Nomura’s successful core global equity investment platform and long standing track record as responsible investors.
The team focuses on individual stock selection with an emphasis on the timely purchase of a select number of high quality businesses trading below their intrinsic values. It implements a unique, collegiate stock selection process combined with proprietary ‘Total Stakeholder Impact’ framework and UN Sustainable Development Goals analysis.
Introducing the team
Portfolio management of the strategy is led by Alex Rowe with Tom Wildgoose as co-manager. The portfolio managers are supported by a team of investment professionals, based in London and Malaysia.
In addition, Alex Rowe and Tom Wildgoose have access to both top-down risk analytics and bottom-up asset selection ideas through Nomura’s global network of analysts. This enables the team to make investment decisions driven by individual company analysis whilst avoiding macro-economic, portfolio aggregate exposures.
