Legg Mason QS Investors Global Responsible Investment Fund
Investment Objective
The Fund aims to earn an after-fee return in excess of the MSCI ESG Leaders Index, in Australian dollars over rolling three-year periods.
Highlights
  • Actively managed exposure to global equities that blends fundamentally driven investment insights and advanced quantitative techniques;
  • Investment approach that seeks attractively valued companies that also embody good and improving Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) practices with the aim of delivering more sustainable returns;
  • An ethical screen which actively screens out companies that do not meet the Fund’s ethical investment criteria 

  • Risks   

    It is important to understand that the value of the investments may go up and down, investment returns are not guaranteed and investors may lose some of their money. The appropriate level of risk for each person depends on a range of factors, including age, investment time frame and the investor’s risk tolerance.
