We are delighted to announce that we have once again been recognised at the ESG Investing Awards. This year we won the award for ‘Best ESG Investment Fund: Fixed Income’ for the LO Funds – Global Climate Bond, which we manage on behalf of Lombard Odier, and were a runner-up for ‘Best ESG Investment Fund: Specialist Fixed Income’ for the AIM US$ Liquid Impact Fund, our short duration offering.

The ESG Investing Awards 2022 celebrate the best in Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) research, ratings, products and sustainability. The awards are the only ones devoted to assessing and evaluating the best companies involved in all areas of ESG investing across the globe.

In assessing AIM, the judges made the following comments:

Best ESG Investment Fund: Fixed Income

Winner: Affirmative Investment Management, for LO Funds – Global Climate Bond

Affirmative Investment Management has investments in a broad range of issuers and they highlight clear SDG links in their publicity and documentation materials. Indeed, the fund is present in all three areas of ESG and the fund already generates a positive return”.

Best ESG Investment Fund: Specialist Fixed Income

Runner-up: Affirmative Investment Management, for AIM US$ Liquid Impact Fund

“Affirmative Investment Management is a worthy runner-up with the fund having a presence in all three areas of ESG. In the `specialized’ ESG funds category Affirmative Investment Management qualifies because it invests in short-term securities, which provides a slightly narrower specialisation than other funds. The fund’s positive returns make it a strong competitor”.
