Ecofin Advisors Limited, a leading UK based sustainable investment firm has launched a second Global Equity fund in Ireland, the Ecofin Global Renewables Infrastructure UCITS Fund.  

Equity Trustees are the appointed UCITS Management Company to the Gateway UCITS Funds plc supporting the launch of Ecofin’s second sub-fund on the platform.

The firm is committed to sustainable investment aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals and offers investment options with strong risk-adjusted returns while avoiding risks posed by companies and assets that are exposed to environmental and social factors.

“We’re proud to support Ecofin as they expand their UCITS fund range on the Gateway UCITS platform and look forward to partnering with them as they develop this exciting new offering,” said Kevin Lavery, CEO, Equity Trustees Fund Services (Ireland). 

Commenting on the new launch, Brent Newcomb, President of Ecofin said: “We are delighted to launch a second UCITS on the Gateway UCITS platform and to continue developing our relationship with Equity Trustees. Their team has led this project from the front, allowing us to focus on portfolio management and our clients.”

This latest launch again demonstrates Equity Trustees’ capability to support existing and new clients as it continues to grow its presence in Europe through the UCITS and AIFMD offering.  

“At the core of our model is the belief that by providing a comprehensive Management Company service that goes beyond the pure regulatory requirements, we can allow our clients to focus on their core skillsets,” said Mr Lavery.
