By Lesley-Ann Morgan, Head of Multi-Asset Strategy and Jingjing Cui, Fund Manager at Schroders.

There is a perception that being an ESG investor is becoming incompatible with being an income investor. We don’t think that’s true.

We believe it is possible to build a portfolio of sustainable income by:

  • Looking beyond the headline income and sustainability numbers and actively positioning the portfolio within and between asset classes
  • Taking a multi-asset approach, to allow a greater range of tools to meet both the income and sustainability objectives of the portfolio
  • Dynamically changing the positioning of the portfolio to take advantage of changing income and sustainability characteristics available in the market at different times.
