Amundi US Announces Expansion of ESG Offerings

Amundi US today announced that it has expanded its US range of ESG strategies with the launch of Amundi US Equity ESG Improvers SMA.

The actively managed strategy offers exposure to ESG-related growth potential by investing in companies that have embraced, or will embrace, a positive ESG trajectory within their businesses, while also investing in companies that are currently ESG leaders in their sectors. The strategy seeks to outperform the S&P 500.

Lisa Jones, President and CEO of Amundi US, and Head of the Americas, said, “As we continue to expand the breadth of ESG solutions tailored to different client segments in the US, we identified an opportunity to import an innovative strategy from Amundi’s ESG Improvers range of offerings available outside the US. This ESG Improvers strategy may appeal to US investors looking for a core ESG holding with the potential to participate in the upside of companies that are expanding their focus on ESG.”

Craig Sterling, Head of Equity Research, US, and a member of the team managing the strategy, said, “We believe companies with a solid fundamental investment case, combined with a positive approach to ESG, may be well-positioned to drive alpha generation over time. This strategy is designed to bridge the gap between ESG momentum and financial performance.”

The strategy benefits from Amundi’s robust ESG research, paired with high-conviction fundamental analysis performed by Amundi US’s team of highly experienced equity research analysts. Amundi’s Responsible investing team includes more than 45 specialists, and its ESG analysis covers more than 13,500 issuers across debt and equity. Amundi managed €793 billion in responsible investment assets worldwide as of June 30, 2022.

Amundi US Equity ESG Improvers SMA expands the range of ESG strategies available in the US. Additional ESG- and climate-focused portfolios that are under development for the US market will leverage the extensive resources of Amundi, which is recognized for its long-time commitment to, and leadership in, responsible investing.
