Asset Class

Describe what processes are in place and the outputs or outcomes achieved

Commodities

The Global Commodities fund is covered by Schroders’ relevant firm wide sustainability policy. While ESG considerations cannot be integrated into decisions in the same way as many other asset classes, we recognize the relationship between broader social and environmental trends or risks and commodity markets.  Our investment approach is based on fundamental analysis of individual commodity markets and their drivers, including the impact of environmental factors, social unrest or political risks where these are material to the investment outlook for commodity markets. Our analysis is grounded in the principle of strengthening the returns we generate for our clients, and see its value in the fund’s performance.
