Environmental Finance’s Sustainable Investment Awards 2023 “Hedge fund manager of the year” award

1 min read

Aurum Fund Management Ltd. (“Aurum”) has been named “Hedge fund manager of the year” at Environmental Finance’s Sustainable Investment Awards 2023. The award recognises Aurum’s commitment to ESG integration and the efforts of the company to galvanise the hedge fund industry to have a positive impact.

By including ESG in its risk management process, Aurum engages with underlying managers to ensure awareness of ESG opportunities, such as potential alpha generation associated with the transition to a low-carbon economy.

Consideration is also given to where an underlying manager sits on the ESG integration spectrum so that ESG risks can be considered on a strategy-by-strategy basis. This approach involves regular engagement, ongoing monitoring and assesses all the portfolio’s strategies, according to the firm.

Aurum also implements ESG via its Embedded Impact approach where donations made to selected environmental and humanitarian charities. These are structured to increase proportionally as assets under management increase.

“We see our role as a specialist hedge fund investment manager as being able to help to develop and share industry ESG best practice,” said Dudley Cottingham, chairman of Aurum Fund Management Ltd. “We are proud to accept this award in acknowledgement of this and our collaborative approach across the hedge fund universe.”
