US - SAM (Sustainable Asset Management) has entered the US market targeting institutional investors with sustainable water and sustainable climate mutual funds.
SAM has launched two sustainability theme-based SEC-registered funds to provide the same investment approach it has been offering to investors in Europe, Australia and Asia.
It added that it would be launching other sustainable investment products to US investors later this year.
Reto Ringger, founder and CEO of SAM, said: “The broad topic of sustainability is attracting increasing global attention from both institutional and private investors. Until now, however, US investors haven’t been able to participate in the business opportunities created by those companies helping develop technologies and products in the sustainablity space.”
