CT Responsible Global Equity Fund

Still pioneers after 25 years

The fund targets long-term capital growth with stock selection focused within defined sustainability-orientated investment themes. Our active management ethos extends to stewardship activities and considered engagement to drive positive change in the world.  We aim to measure our impact along the way, improving how we rank against a range of sustainability metrics over time.
