Kleinwort Benson Investors: Global Equity and Environmental Investing Specialists

Our objective is to enhance performance and meet our clients' investment expectations by specialisation and innovation. We have particular expertise in total return investing and environmental equity investing.

The Total Return approach used in our Global Equity Strategies emphasises the importance of dividend yield and dividend growth as well as price increases. We employ a diversified approach, investing in all industries, all regions and all capitalisations. This strategy has consistently outperformed the MSCI World Index since its 2003 launch, with less risk and volatility .

We expect the key investment drivers over the next 20 years to include the world's changing demographic profile, scarce natural resources, and sustained pressure for lower carbon economies. Since 2000 we have been pioneering environmental investment strategies and were one of the first investment firms globally to launch separate Water and Energy Solutions Funds, a product line-up that now includes Agribusiness and Global Resource Solutions.

We are pleased to be a signatory of the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI) and be a part of the network of investors who support and promote the long term benefits of sustainable investment within the context of their individual investment processes and fiduciaries duties.Click here for further information.

The early weeks of 2016 were dominated by a very nervous and negative market environment, with headlines at the time being dominated by talk of the potential for global recession and persistent fears about deflation. The quarter ended on a much more confident note, with risk assets including equities rallying strongly and confidence restored in the global economic recovery and the health of the corporate sector. This ‘tug-of-war’ between for example; growth or recession, inflation or deflation, rate rises or rate cuts is something we as investors are now well accustomed to. As for outlook, we at KBI remain in the ‘glass half full’ camp as we have done since the global economic and market recovery commenced after the 2008 global crisis. Market volatility remains a constant feature as do the supportive actions of central banks, which once again came to the fore during the second half of the quarter. As such the first quarter of 2016 in many ways was a quarter of two halves, finishing on a more upbeat note. I continue to see equity market dips as a buying opportunity.

Global Equity Strategies
The aim of Global Equity Strategies is to exploit the inefficiency with which the market continually under-prices the earnings potential of higher dividend paying companies.
