Greentech Announcements | August 23, 2018
NEW YORK — Greentech Capital Advisors (“Greentech”) is pleased to announce that GCA Investment Management is expanding its products with the launch of a UCITS regulated fund structure, the GCA Sustainable Growth Undertakings for Collective Investments in Transferable Securities (UCITS) Fund (the “UCITS Fund”), catering to the growing demands of institutional and retail investor groups in Europe. This follows the successful 2014 launch of the environmental impact public equity investment strategy, the GCA Sustainable Growth Fund.
The UCITS Fund was approved by the Central Bank of Ireland on August 1st, 2018, and is a sub-fund of Gateway UCITS Funds plc (which is managed by Société Générale Securities Services, GmbH, Germany). Dillon Eustace is the legal advisor to the UCITS Fund.
The UCITS Fund started trading on August 13th, 2018 and is a replica of the existing GCA Sustainable Growth Fund. The UCITS Fund will be managed by our Portfolio Managers, David Smith and Adam Hinckley. The Managers of the UCITS Fund use bottom-up analysis to invest in a concentrated portfolio of companies that maximize their positive environmental impact on consumers and communities.
David Smith, CIO and Portfolio Manager for the UCITS Fund, said, “We continue to identify compelling investment themes around Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) and invest in companies with a majority of revenues derived from disruptive infrastructure technologies that are faster growing, lower carbon, more efficient, and more resilient.”
