On March 7, 2017 Money Management reported that Remerga, an asset manager specializing in emerging markets, has launched the Emerging Markets Sustainable Leaders Fund. It will offer Australian investors exposure to equities in Brazil, Egypt, India, Poland and South Africa.
“The manager said it would apply an approach based on deep due diligence on sustainability as well as environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors, which were often overlooked in the emerging economies.
According to Remerga’s chief investment officer and director, Craig Mercer, ESG factors were grossly under-researched and the companies with poor ESG practices would effectively add additional cost into their businesses.”
