MADISON, Wis., Jan. 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —
Madison Investments is pleased to announce the addition of a new sustainable fund to its lineup of risk-conscious mutual funds. The Madison Sustainable Equity Fund is an actively-managed, high conviction mutual fund designed to pursue long-term capital appreciation by investing in the common stock of high-quality, durable growth, large cap companies that the Fund’s portfolio managers believe incorporate sustainability into their overall strategy.
The Fund is managed by Maya Bittar, CFA® and Dave Geisler, who have more than 52 years of combined industry experience and have been managing the sustainability-focused Disciplined Equity Separately Managed Account (SMA) at Madison since 2018.
“Many environmental, social, and governmental principles have been incorporated into our research process for a long time, and we are excited to launch a fund that invests in companies that make sustainability a strategic priority,” said Rich Eisinger, Head of Equities at Madison Investments, adding, “Maya and Dave have a long track record of managing equity portfolios with special attention paid to sustainability factors.”
Earlier this year, Madison Investments signed the UN-supported Principles for Responsible Investment, the world’s leading global network of investors striving for responsible investment by actively incorporating environmental, social, and governance factors into analysis, decision-making, and ownership practices.
“We believe high-quality, durable growth companies that integrate sustainability into their strategy and operations will deliver value to investors over the long-term,” said Maya Bittar, Portfolio Manager. “In our opinion, companies with strong sustainable attributes are better managers of short- and long-term risks and opportunities, and as a result make for better risk-adjusted investment returns.”
The Madison Sustainability Equity Fund is available in individual class Y shares (MFSYX) and institutional class I shares (MFSIX) with investment minimums of $1,000 and $250,000, respectfully.
