Why we re-engineered our ethical share fund

We now know the world is vulnerable to shocks, change is accelerating and successful companies must confidently manage a wider set of risks. Meanwhile investor attitudes and preferences have changed.

Our approach

Pendal Horizon Fund is a concentrated, high-conviction strategy of 15 to 35 stocks. It draws on the company insights and risk management that underpin our strong track record in performance.

Horizon is positioned to benefit from the transition to a more sustainable Australian economy. We actively seek companies that are leaders and enablers of this shift and screen out those that detract, such as fossil fuels. At a minimum, the fund’s holdings must “do no harm”

This aligns it with the trends shaping coming decades — from digitalisation to decarbonisation. Here analyst Elise McKay discusses Xero, our top pick in the ASX tech sector.

Block, build, commit Read moreRead less

In 2021 we took Pendal Ethical Share Fund, with its 19-year history, and re-imagined and re-engineered it for the next two decades.

We renamed it Pendal Horizon Fund, a strategy built for performance while also acting as a force for positive change in Australia’s future.

These elements are the foundations of Horizon:

Block
Protect against existential risks
  • Broader exclusions
  • New company incident review process
  • Targeted engagement
Build
Benefit from industrial change
Enable an economic transition

Greater focus on companies:

  • Enabling shift to a sustainable economy
  • Leading industrial transition
Commit
High conviction Consistent 
Nimble
  • Limit to 35 stocks
  • Constrained capacity

Actively invests in companies that enable a more sustainable and “future-proof” Australian economy Read moreRead less

This allows the fund to benefit from trends shaping coming decades — from digitisation to decarbonisation. We allocate capital to companies that directly contribute — or enable others to contribute — to areas such as:

Innovation & technological advances
More sustainable resource consumption
Health & wellbeing
Sustainable & resilient infrastructure
Quality education
Financial wellbeing
Supply chain resilience
Social inclusion
 & diversity
Meeting basic needs
Decarbonisation
Avoids activities that undermine a more sustainable economy Read moreRead less

We screen out harmful industries such as fossil fuels, alcohol, gaming, tobacco, weapons, logging, predatory lending and companies that breach standards such as:

Fossil fuels 
(coal, oil and gas)
Weapons
Logging
Alcohol
Animal testing
Uranium
Gambling
Tobacco
Pornography
Predatory lending practices
Leverages Pendal’s deep responsible investment capabilities Read moreRead less

Pendal has extensive experience in responsible investing across all asset classes. We also draw on advice from Regnan — our wholly-owned responsible investing researcher and fund manager — in assessing companies on their contribution to a sustainable, future-oriented Australian economy and their management of ESG risks.

Prioritises active stewardship and engagement with companies Read moreRead less

Each year our fund managers undertake many meetings with CEOs and company directors to encourage sustainable policies and minimisation of ESG risks. This leverages Pendal’s depth of corporate access and scale of funds under management, allowing us to hold management to account.

Significant features

The Pendal Horizon Fund is an actively managed portfolio of Australian shares.

Fund objective

The Fund aims to provide a return (before fees, costs and taxes) that exceeds the S&P/ASX 300 (TR) Index over the medium to long term.

Pendal Fund Services Limited is the responsible entity and issuer of units in the Pendal Horizon Fund (Fund) ARSN: 096 328 219. A product disclosure statement (PDS) is available for the Fund and can be obtained by calling 1800 813 886 or visiting www.pendalgroup.com. You should obtain and consider the PDS before deciding whether to acquire, continue to hold or dispose of units in the Fund. An investment in the Fund is subject to investment risk, including possible delays in repayment of withdrawal proceeds and loss of income and principal invested. “Regnan” is a registered trademark of Pendal Group Limited.

The information on this website is for general information purposes only and has been prepared without taking into account any recipient’s personal objectives, financial situation or needs. Because of this recipients should, before acting on this information, consider its appropriateness having regard to their individual objectives, financial situation and needs and, if necessary, seek professional advice. This information is not to be regarded as a securities recommendation.

Where performance returns are quoted “After fees” then this assumes reinvestment of distributions and is calculated using exit prices which take into account management costs but not tax you may pay as an investor. Where “Growth” returns are shown, these represent the percentage change in the value of units in the Fund excluding any distributions paid. “Distribution” returns equal the difference between the “Total return (After fees)”, and the Growth return.

Where performance returns are quoted “After fees and tax”, they are calculated using exit prices which take into account management costs and taxes paid within the trust up to a maximum of 15%. Where performance returns are quoted “Before fees and tax”, they exclude the effects of management costs and any taxes. In the case of the Pendal Managed Cash Fund and the Pendal Stable Cash Plus Fund all returns are calculated using the average of the daily distribution yields and assume monthly reinvestment of distributions.
