Artemis launches Positive Future Fund

RELATED TOPICS​

Artemis Fund Managers has launched the Artemis Positive Future Fund, a global equity fund investing in disruptive and innovative companies that create transformational change in society.  

The fund aims to outperform the MSCI AC World (TR) index by assembling a concentrated portfolio of quoted companies, typically 35-45, that address the most significant challenges to sustainability. These companies have the potential to disrupt inefficient, outmoded business models. The fund focuses on innovative, revenue-generating, high growth companies at an earlier stage of their development, offering diversification in a sector where large-cap ‘quality’ and ‘growth’ dominate.

The fund is managed by Craig Bonthron, Neil Goddin, Jonathan Parsons and Ryan Smith, who joined Artemis in November 2020. The four worked together at Aegon Asset Management (formerly Kames Capital), where they managed the successful Aegon Global Sustainable Equity Fund. They are based in Artemis’ Edinburgh office; and report to the firm’s CIO, Matthew Beesley.
 
Bonthron says: “We believe the best long-term opportunities for growth lie in companies that are addressing the challenges of sustainability. Our aim is to identify emerging companies that are doing this and that are poised to displace incumbents. Leading performance and sustainability are our objectives.”
 
Matthew Beesley, CIO, adds: “As always, our focus is on meeting our clients’ needs, and they have been searching for products that offer market-leading returns while making a positive impact on society. Craig, Neil, Jonathan and Ryan have a demonstrable record of achieving that.”
