Flying Colours adds new ESG investment portfolios to its Centralised Investment Proposition

Celeste Garib, 21 July 2023

In response to growing client demand for ethical investment solutions, we have added a new set of ESG portfolios to our Centralised Investment Proposition (CIP)*

The new portfolios have been launched by our sister company, Flying Colours Investment Management Limited and have been designed to closely mirror the performance of their Core Discretionary Managed portfolios.

Portfolio Manager, Renzo Desbordes from Flying Colours Investment Management explains; “ESG stands for Environmental, Social and Governance. ESG investing seeks to invest in companies which demonstrate that they are meeting objectives around one or more of those areas.

The key challenge that comes with this form of investing is that by limiting your investments into a select range of funds, you reduce diversification and increase risk.

Our range of portfolios overcomes this challenge by focusing on those companies which can demonstrate that they are the best ESG players within each sector.

This recognises that all sectors have a continued role within society but ensures there is pressure on them to minimise damage. For example, the oil and gas sector tends to receive a poor rating overall, however, there are companies within that sector which perform well in terms of ESG criteria, and so deserve our investment. This way, we maintain the high level of investment diversification that clients need.

We believe this approach is better suited for clients who aim to make a positive impact on the world, while maintaining risk control.”

The set of portfolios align with the Flying Colours Core Discretionary Managed Portfolios which are:

  • Defensive
  • Conservative
  • Balanced
  • Growth
  • Growth Plus
  • Aggressive
