Schroders expands its suite of UK-based sustainable thematic strategies with the Digital Infrastructure Fund

21 February 2022

Schroders is today expanding its Global Transformation Range of thematic funds with the Digital Infrastructure Fund, a UK unit trust investing in companies facilitating a sustainable transition to a digital economy.

With Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) factors at the core of the investment process, the Schroder Digital Infrastructure Fund aims to deliver long-term capital growth by investing in companies which own mission critical and sustainable infrastructure for the growing digital economy.

It will be managed by Hugo Machin and Tom Walker who have over a decade of experience investing in digital infrastructure, a long-standing component of Schroders’ flagship Global Cities strategy.

Drawing on the data-driven methodology employed by Schroder Global Cities, the fund managers will apply a distinctive active investment approach focused on identifying digital infrastructure companies backed by physical assets.

This will be achieved by focusing on areas that form the backbone of connectivity for all digital platforms such as; fibre-optic cables, macro towers, data centres and small cells. It is expected that these asset types will form the majority of the Fund’s investments but other digital infrastructure assets will be included in analysis for potential inclusion.
