“We see a €90trn funding gap from now through 2050 to address climate change.”
Neuberger Berman has recently introduced the Neuberger Berman Climate Innovation fund, aiming to invest in cutting-edge climate technologies and solutions. This fund, managed by New York-based portfolio managers Evelyn Chow and Charlie Lim, is designed to maintain a portfolio of 30 to 60 global equity holdings.
The fund adopts a distinctive approach, combining in-depth fundamental analysis with an emphasis on Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) criteria. Its focus extends beyond merely identifying climate technology trends; it seeks to support and benefit from the key enablers driving climate innovation.
The Neuberger Berman Climate Innovation fund aligns with Article 8 of the EU Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation, and its performance will be measured against the MSCI All-Country World Index. This ensures a commitment to sustainable finance principles and responsible investing. (ESG CLARITY)
