ACT Range

Invest with purpose to support the transition to a more sustainable economy


Investing in companies and projects that are leading the way to a more sustainable and just world not only powers the transition to a net-zero economy but also aims to ensure no one is left behind in that transition, as well as providing the potential to deliver more sustainable financial returns over the long-term.

Our ACT range is our most focused ESG offering. Alongside financial returns, the range aims to target specific sustainability goals around people and planet. Investment decisions are guided by both the financial goals and either ESG themes or measurable, positive impact. 

A common framework

All strategies in the range apply the same key principles which form a common framework underpinning the range, as shown below:



A comprehensive range
