Invesco has launched a five-strong risk-rated multi-asset ESG range that will invest primarily in ETFs.
The Invesco Summit Responsible Range will be managed the firm’s multi-asset fund managers Clive Emery (pictured) and Richard Batty along with deputy fund manager David Aujla.
The trio will work in partnership with the Invesco Solutions team while supported by the wider multi-asset, global ETF and ESG teams.
Along with investing in ETFs, Invesco has worked with index providers to create customised ESG indices for the range.
The risk-rated portfolios have three objectives; to grow the assets invested over the long term, to invest 100% in products that meet certain ESG criteria and to adhere to the specific risk levels set for each fund.

Emery commented: “The multi-asset team believes responsible asset allocation is a key additional development to traditional multi-asset investing.
“By building portfolios using responsible asset allocation at the start of the construction process, we believe we are offering a different proposition for investors who are seeking assurance and clarity on where and how we are making those responsible investment decisions.”
The range is part of a trend of ETF issuers unveiling multi-asset ESG strategies. Last September, BlackRock launched Europe’s first multi-asset ESG ETF suite.
