CT (Lux) Responsible Global Equity Fund

Still pioneers after 25 years

Our CT (Lux) Responsible Global Equity Fund was founded in 2005 and is following the same strategy as its sister fund in the UK, which adopted its global remit in 1998 and is celebrating its 25th anniversary. The portfolio is built around our robust ‘Avoid, Improve, Invest’ philosophy and draws on a wealth of expertise in environmental, social and governance (ESG) investing together with the capabilities of our 40+ strong responsible investment team.

The fund targets long-term capital growth with stock selection focused within defined sustainability-orientated investment themes. Our active management ethos extends to stewardship activities and considered engagement to drive positive change in the world. We aim to measure our impact along the way, improving how we rank against a range of sustainability metrics over time.

25 years of Responsible Global Equity – still learning every day

Over the past 25 years, our team has been committed to making a positive impact on the world through responsible investing. Our approach has evolved over time as we have learned from our experiences and adapted to new challenges, always striving to improve and push the boundaries of what responsible investing can achieve.

Still pioneers after 25 years

Learn how the dynamics between exclusions, investing for good through persisting sustainability megatrends and active ownership have shifted over time, plus the power of active ownership.
