Schroders set to launch climate change-focused private assets LTAF solution


Schroders Capital, a specialist private markets investment division, has launched a long-term asset fund designed to help UK pension fund investors support net-zero.

According to ESG News, the core impact objective of Climate+ is to contribute positively to climate change and support the transition towards net zero economies through its investments.

The strategy will aim to invest across four long-term themes; climate mitigation, climate adaption, biodiversity/natural capital and social vulnerabilities.

Furthermore, the strategy will allocate to infrastructure, real estate, natural capital, biodiversity-focused assets and private equity through a mixture of its own capital and externally managed funds.

Schroders head of UK Institutional Defined Contribution Tim Horne said, “Opportunities for UK DC savers to benefit from the returns private assets can bring have traditionally been very limited. The launch of the Climate+ strategy will enable investors to take advantage of the diversification and performance private assets can deliver, as well as the sustained momentum now being directed towards the global transition to net zero and green economies.

“It is a testament to our focus on meeting the needs of investors in this space that we have been able to launch this strategy so quickly after receiving regulatory approval to launch the UK’s first LTAF.”
