November 24, 2020 / Regnan Global Equity Impact Solutions Fund
REGNAN is a responsible investment leader with a long and proud heritage providing advice and insights on important environmental, social and governance issues.
For many years our pioneering analysis has changed the way investors and businesses think about value creation and their wider responsibilities to society.
Building on that expertise, Regnan has now expanded its capabilities into responsible investment funds management, backed by the considerable resources of Pendal Group.
While continuing to provide engagement, advisory and research services, Regnan now also delivers innovative sustainable and impact investment solutions.
The new Regnan Global Equity Impact Solutions Fund invests in mission-driven companies we believe are well placed to solve the world’s biggest problems.
Managed by a four-person investment team based in London, the fund aims to outperform the broad global equity market over the long term by investing in companies that provide solutions for the growing, unmet sustainability needs of society and the environment.
The team’s investment lens is a bespoke Regnan taxonomy system based on the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and their 169 underlying targets.
Distributed by J O Hambro, the fund launched in the UK in October and is expected to be available in Europe in November. Australian availability is expected in early December, distributed by Pendal.
In Australia only we have launched the Regnan Credit Impact Trust, distributed via Pendal. This strategy invests in cash, fixed and floating rate securities where the proceeds create positive environmental and social change.
Our new look
Reflecting our new, expanded mission, Regnan is introducing a new look — and soon a new website.
The new Regnan logo — seen at the top of this website — evokes shifting tectonic plates, signifying the permanent change that sustainability brings to the investment landscape.
The logo also emphasises the “Re” in Regnan — a prefix seen in words such as re-make, re-imagine, re-vamp — and responsible investing.
The name Regnan itself — taken from the world’s tallest flowering plant (Eucalyptus Regnans) — remains a lasting symbol of leadership, focus and determination to look far into the future on behalf of our clients.
Regnan is part of Pendal Group, an Australian-listed investment manager and owner of J O Hambro Capital Management (JOHCM).
Regnan is a responsible investment leader with a long and proud history of providing insight and advice to investors with an interest in long-term, broad-based or values-aligned performance.
Building on that expertise, in 2019 Regnan expanded into responsible investment funds management, backed by the considerable resources of Pendal Group.
