KBI Global Investors has extended its range of responsible investing strategies with the introduction of fossil fuel-free versions of its global, Eurozone and emerging markets equity funds.

With climate change issues becoming increasingly prominent, the new funds satisfy the concerns and requirements of a growing band of investors, KBI said.

In recognition of its decision to exclude fossil fuel companies from these portfolios, and to give them a distinct identity within the KBI Global Investors suite, the trio of funds have adopted the ‘Integris’ brand.

Reinforcing KBI’s decision to launch its new funds, a recent study from global campaign organisation ‘Fossil Free’, found that more than 1,000 institutions with managed investments worth almost $8tn (€7tn) have committed to divest from fossil fuels.

Eoin Fahy, head of responsible investing at KBI, said: “We have three decades of experience in managing responsible investing portfolios for our clients, and for certain portfolios already rule out investments in certain controversial industries and activities, such as tobacco.”
