Malta: Alliance Trust Sustainable Future Funds Receive Industry Recognition For Strong Performance
Last Updated: 31 July 2015

 Alliance Trust Investments (ATI) is pleased to announce that four funds from its award winning Sustainable Future fund range have been recognised as among the best performing ethical/SRI funds by two separate industry bodies.

The latest research from Investment Life & Pensions Moneyfacts found ATI's Sustainable Future UK Ethical and Sustainable Future UK Growth funds to have enjoyed the two strongest performances in the past 12 months when compared to other sustainability focused products, seeing 17.9% growth and 15.7% growth, respectively. The research showed that, overall, ethical/SRI funds beat returns generated by traditional funds in 14 out of the 20 (70%) different investment scenarios surveyed, with the average ethical fund returning 7.8%, compared with 6.5% from the average non-ethical fund, in the past 12 months.

Separately, FE Trustnet included ATI's Sustainable Future Absolute Growth and Sustainable Future Managed funds in its inaugural recommended ethical funds list. These were two of just thirteen funds selected from an initial list of 218 funds and were chosen using the same stringent performance requirements that funds are put through in order to make it on to the FE Invest Recommended list.

Peter Michaelis, Head of Equities at Alliance Trust Investments said:

"We are extremely pleased with the performance of the Sustainable Future fund range and are naturally delighted to receive this industry recognition. Our Sustainable Future Managed Fund and UK Ethical Fund both boast first quartile performance over 1, 3 and 5 years to the end of June. The strong track record of the Sustainable Future range shows that by placing sustainability at the heart of the investment process it is possible not only to generate superior returns for shareholders, but to do so by backing companies helping to improve the quality of life of current and future generations".
