About the Fund
The Pengana WHEB Sustainable Impact Fund invests in a diversified global portfolio of high quality companies which produce goods and services that provide solutions to sustainability challenges.
The Pengana WHEB Sustainable Impact Fund aims to generate capital growth over the medium to longer term.
Pengana has appointed UK-based WHEB Asset Management LLP (WHEB) to manage the Fund. WHEB is a global leader in sustainable investing with a focus on the opportunities created by the transition to more sustainable, resource efficient and energy efficient economies.
WHEB have identified critical environmental and social challenges facing the global population over the coming decades. WHEB invests in a diverse portfolio of global companies providing solutions to these sustainability challenges via nine sustainable investment themes - five of these are environmental (cleaner energy, environmental services, resource efficiency, sustainable transport and water management) and four are social (education, health, safety and well-being).
The portfolio is actively managed and stock selection is based on deep research integrating financial factors with environmental, social and governance factors.
How we invest your money
The Fund’s investment team builds and maintains a universe of companies which provide solutions to sustainability challenges and are categorised within WHEB’s nine sustainable investment themes. To qualify for WHEB’s universe, companies need to have a market capitalisation of at least US$2 billion, and at least 50% of revenues directly exposed to WHEB’s themes. This universe was first established in 2005, is reviewed on an ongoing basis, and includes around 400 to 500 companies.
