The LGBT Diversity Fund
The LGBT Diversity Fund is a UCITS Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) equity fund which invests in companies screened from an LGBT diversity perspective deemed to offer investment return potential. The Fund will target investment in those companies that maintain higher standards of corporate governance and that seek to support LGBT diversity and the benefits it can create amongst its workforce and in its business dealings.
The LGBT segment is a largely untapped opportunity. It is widely believed that companies that adopt progressive LGBT policies have happier, healthier workforces and we believe that this has a positive influence on company performance.
The LGBT Diversity Fund is unique in its approach to stock selection. Not only do we strive to identify opportunities for best returns by way of our thorough LGBT Diversity filtering process, but we also focus on companies recognised for supporting and promoting equality for members of the LGBT community.
With a highly personalised and client-focused service, the Fund is a leader in responding to a significant and ever-growing sector.
