The fund seeks to invest in companies that contribute to an environmentally sustainable and socially responsible global economy, according to a press release. The fund will invest in themes identified as “Industries of the Future,” which are based on sustainability trends and challenges, to include cleaner energy, environmental services, health, and sustainable transport.
Its strategy will mirror that of a Henderson fund available in the UK since 1995, run by the same portfolio management team, the announcement said.
The Henderson Global Funds family includes eight other load mutual funds: the European Focus Fund, Global Equity Income Fund, Global Opportunities Fund, Global Technology Fund, International Opportunities Fund, Japan-Asia Focus Fund, US Focus Fund, and Worldwide Income Fund.
