Amundi US announced that its flagship equity strategy, a US Large Cap Core strategy with an ESG focus, launched a separately managed account (SMA) on UBS Financial Services Inc.’s ACCESS, Strategic Wealth Portfolio (SWP) and Advisor Allocation Program (AAP) platforms effective March 25, 2022. The strategy is called Pioneer Large Cap Core SMA.

The US Large Cap Core strategy has a history dating back to 1928 with the founding of Pioneer Fund, one of the first mutual funds to implement a socially responsible investment framework.1 The SMA seeks to identify attractively valued stocks that are sustainable from a competitive, financial and ESG (environmental, social, governance) perspective and weight them appropriately in the portfolio. The portfolio’s core approach gives it the flexibility to migrate across the growth and value spectrum and seek attractive investment opportunities, favoring companies we believe are benefiting from secular technology themes.2

Lisa Jones, President and CEO of Amundi US, and Head of the Americas, said, “We are pleased to be part of UBS’s SMA offerings and look forward to serving their clients with our flagship equity strategy with an ESG focus. Our deep experience in this investment strategy gives us confidence that our SMA can play an important role in helping UBS’s clients meet their long-term financial goals.”

The Pioneer Large Cap Core SMA with an ESG focus increases investor choice and provides greater differentiation to help meet our clients’ unique needs, outcomes and investment objectives.”
