We offer a range of funds for charitable investors with a focus on financial returns which also incorporate ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) outcomes.

ESG investing is a strategy that puts money to work with companies that strive to make the world a better place. Potential investments are screened against a set of standards to ensure that the fund only holds assets that meet those criteria.

The funds are only open to charitable investors, and the pooling of investment allows for greater diversification than could be achieved with a smaller amount of money, hence reducing risks.

Explore the IFSL CAF ESG funds

There are three IFSL CAF ESG Funds with clear aims, investment policies and targets, to enable charitable investors to choose the most appropriate fund or funds for their needs based on risk and return appetite.

All funds are actively managed by LGT, this means that the investment manager decides which investments to buy or sell and when. They will have exposure to ESG focused investments through a broad range of asset classes and investments across different industries and geographical regions, however not all asset classes may be held at all times.

The aim of each fund is to increase the value of an investment over a minimum of 5 years through a combination of capital growth - which is profit on investments held, and income received by the Fund – which is money paid out of investments, such as dividends from shares and interest from bonds.

Investment involves risk.

Past performance is not a guide to future results.
