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 content is not intended to be a personal recommendation to buy or sell any fund or trust, or to adopt a particular investment strategy. 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. Past performance is not a reliable guide to future returns. Market and exchange-rate movements may cause the value of investments to go down as well as up. Yields will fluctuate and so income from investments is variable and not guaranteed. You may not get back the amount originally invested. Tax treatment depends of your individual circumstances and may be subject to change in the future. If you are unsure about the suitability of any investment you should seek professional advice. Whilst FundCalibre provides product information, guidance and fund research we cannot know which of these products or funds, if any, are suitable for your particular circumstances and must leave that judgement to you. Before you make any investment decision, make sure you’re comfortable and fully understand the risks.
