West Palm Beach, November 1, 2021 – Intech, a specialized quantitative equity manager, announced the launch of a sustainable global equity strategy: Intech Global Enhanced Plus – ESG. The introduction builds on Intech’s sustainable investing capabilities that comprise over US$18 billion in ESG-tilt assets under management as of September 30, 2021.
Intech Global Enhanced Plus – ESG refreshes an Intech global equity strategy with a sustainable focus. The refresh seeks to boost Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) scores above the MSCI World Index while lowering carbon intensity below the index and preserving its risk-reward profile.
“The launch is another step in serving our clients’ changing preferences – to allocate capital toward global sustainability goals,” said Adrian Banner, CEO and CIO of Intech. “Clients are increasingly asking us to design bespoke ESG solutions for them. This strategy attempts to capture their collective requirements.”
Richard Yasenchak, Head of Client Portfolio Management, adds, “Our approach to ESG integration is distinctive. We use statistically stable ESG characteristics to target portfolio-level outcomes, allowing us to back-test beyond published ESG stock ratings. You can’t sidestep ESG data issues if you want reliable results.”
Intech’s commitment to sustainable investing extends beyond new product launches. Intech embeds a long-term sustainability focus across all areas of influence: ESG Investments, Active Stewardship, Corporate Responsibility, and Global Cooperation. Intech believes sustainability efforts reinforce the firm’s principal responsibility: representing clients’ objectives, preferences, and best interests.
