News in brief – 10 December 2021

Kempen Capital Management UK has completed the onboarding of a new fiduciary management mandate for Stonegate Pubs Pension Scheme.

Stonegate Pubs has two defined benefit pension schemes, Laurel Pub Pension Scheme and Yates Group Pension Scheme, and employs over 15,000 people. The pension schemes appointed Kempen’s fiduciary management team following a competitive tendering process which ran from January 2021 to April 2021 and was overseen by Anthony Webb and Aqib Merchant at Isio. The new fiduciary mandate contributes to Kempen’s total client assets under management which stood at EUR 88.3bn as of 30 June 2021.

Stewart Investors’ Sustainable Funds Group has launched a Global Emerging Markets Leaders Sustainability Fund for UK investors.

The fund, now available in the UK as an OEIC and early in 2022 as an Irish VCC for the UK, European Economic Area and Switzerland, invests in high-quality, mid- to large-cap companies that are considered to be well positioned to contribute to, and benefit from sustainable development, with a focus on delivering long-term capital growth over market cycles. Managed by Jack Nelson and David Gait, the fund offers European investors access to the team’s emerging markets sustainability capabilities.

Barnett Waddingham has announced the integration of Legal & General’s Care Concierge service into its digital platform, 4me.

The platform allows members to engage with the range of benefits that are available to them. It offers clients ‘cradle-to-grave’ benefits for their workforces, structured around an employee’s lifecycle, as well as their individual needs and requirements. Legal & General’s Care Concierge service offers comprehensive and confidential advice and guidance, to help people to effectively plan for the cost of long-term care, understand their options and find the right care as quickly as possible.
