Botswana Insurance Fund Management Limited (Bifm) has announced the launch of their latest offering; the Bifm Global Sustainable Growth Fund. The Fund aims to provide capital growth by investing in global equities.
“The Bifm Global Sustainable Growth Fund incorporates significant ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) analysis into the Fund’s construction to identify companies that are capable of delivering long-term sustainable growth and value creation. This allows you, a global citizen, to grow your wealth, and through your investments, positively impact the world,’’ said the Bifm CEO, Neo Bogatsu.
Sustainable investing enables investors to consider both the financial and social/environmental impact of companies and align their investments with their values and principles. This Fund is a purely Offshore Equity Fund, and is ideal for investors with a highrisk appetite and a medium to long term investment horizon.
The Fund has a one year lock-in period after which withdrawals are allowed, once a quarter. With a minimum lump sum investment of P5, 000, a minimum additional investment of P1, 000 and a minimum debit order of P1, 000, an investor can get access to global equities from the comfort of their home through the Bifm Global Sustainable Growth Fund. Bifm is the country’s oldest asset management firm and it has been managing multi-asset mandates since 1975 using a qualitative and quantitative research-led process, proprietary portfolio construction, and risk management systems.
