UBS offers development-bank bond fund as a fixed-income alternative



ImpactAlpha, August 21The Swiss bank, which has pledged $5 billion (of its clients’ money) to SDG-aligned investing, has offered private clients access to big name impact funds like TPG Growth’s Rise Fund.

It’s adding two new funds, including the UBS Sustainable Development Bank Bond Fund, a fixed-income fund invested in development bank bonds from the World Bank and multilateral banks such as the Asian Development Bank. The other, the UBS Engage For Impact Fund, will invest in companies “that integrate sustainability factors into the business model to build a competitive advantage” and “have a clearly identified potential for additional impact that the Advisor intends to drive through engagement,” according to SEC filings.

The two mutual funds form part of UBS Wealth Management’s sustainable investing offering that aims to help clients develop 100% sustainable investment portfolios. The bank’s sustainable assets under management reportedly stand at $2.5 billion.
