UOB Asset Management believes that the investment community has a key role to play in supporting sustainable development by channelling capital to businesses aligned to the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The integration of ESG considerations into our investment process across all asset classes contributes to enhanced performance as it enables us to identify companies which are resilient, well-managed, able to grow sustainably and are likely to maintain their competitiveness in the long term. By doing so, we develop and offer quality investment solutions to help our clients invest for profit and purpose, as we manage their wealth successfully, responsibly and sustainably.
Our sustainable fund products include the United Sustainable Credit Income Fund, which invests in the RobecoSAM SDG Credit Income Fund. The retail fund focuses on bonds from companies that are making progress against the UN SDGs and the Underlying Funds apply a proprietary measurement framework to quantify companies' contributions to the 17 UN SDGs impact to mitigate risk and to enhance long-term returns.
