BMO Responsible Global Equity: the reality of climate change & the danger to the world’s economy

Jamie Jenkins, Head of the Responsible Global Equities and lead manager of the BMO Responsible Global Equity fund, talks to Ryan Lightfoot-Brown about how the fund looks beyond profit and loss to find those companies making a positive contribution to the wider common good – including Xylem.

With over 30 years experience in company engagement, Jamie shares BMO’s recent engagement success with a company looking to expand their supply chains to Vietnam. We also take a look at how are we preparing to live in a warmer world and facing the reality of climate change as a real and present danger to livelihoods and the world’s economy.

 

The views of the author and any people interviewed are their own and do not constitute financial advice. However the knowledge that professional analysts have analysed a fund or trust in depth before assigning them a rating can be a valuable additional filter for anyone looking to make their own decisions. Before you make any investment decision make sure you’re comfortable and fully understand the risks. If you invest in fund or trust make sure you know what specific risks they’re exposed to. Past performance is not a reliable guide to future returns. Remember all investments can fall in value as well as rise, so you could make a loss.
