Environmental, social and economic impact
Structured investment process
Thematic equity strategies are actively managed and employ a structured investment process. Each thematic universe is built using stocks with meaningful exposure to respective, theme-related activities.
The thematic universe is divided into investment clusters rather than single sectors. Each investment cluster captures the opportunities stretching across the diverse market segments along the theme’s value chain be it down-, mid- or upstream.
Portfolio construction is driven by high-conviction, bottom-up stock selection focused on sound economic fundamentals and attractive valuations that capitalize on solutions to sustainability challenges.
