Sarasin has issued what it says is the world’s first fund to specialise in the shares of sustainable property companies, the Sarasin Sustainable Equity – Real Estate Global Fund.

Sarasin has issued what it says is the world’s first fund to specialise in the shares of sustainable property companies, the Sarasin Sustainable Equity – Real Estate Global Fund.

The fund is the consequence of the repositioning of the former Sarasin Real Estate Equity – IIID (EUR).

Taking into consideration environmental and social criteria, the fund invests worldwide in a broad spread of listed companies active in real estate and in real estate investment trusts.
 
Jakes Ferguson (pictured), the fund manager who conceived the new fund, says: ‘We have looked at sustainability in global real estate for over 12 months, and find this issue right at the top of the agenda for many Western Reits and property companies. We are sure that sustainability will continue to grow in importance in Asia.’
 
The risks associated with the fund involve price fluctuations mainly in response to company-specific developments as well as changes in the economic and interest rate environment. There is also an exchange-rate risk if the investor’s subscription currency is not the same as the fund’s investment currency (or currencies).

Over the past ten years the volume of assets that Sarasin manages according to sustainable principles has increased from CHF626m to CHF6.5bn by the end of 2008.
