Investment Team

The TT Global Environmental Impact Fund is managed by TT's Environmental Solutions team based in London and Hong Kong

Investment team backed by ESG specialist and advisory board

 

The investment team comprises nine members that include portfolio managers and analysts, with further support provided by TT’s dedicated Head of ESG and a separate and independent advisory board. 

The Fund benefits from the collective expertise of five dedicated analysts based in London, as well as four analysts based in Hong Kong who look to find the best ideas from across Asia, notably in China.

They are also experienced in analysing companies around the world, including Emerging Markets, ensuring that the strategy has a truly global reach.​
