Direction of Pheim Global ESG Islamic Fund (PGEIF)

ESG investing has evolved in recent years to meet the demands of institutional and retail investors, as well as certain public sector authorities, that wish to better incorporate long-term financial risks and opportunities into their investment decision making processes to generate long-term value.

“Pheim is a strong advocate of Investing according to Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) criteria. We believe Pheim’s Investment Philosophy is relevant and will add value to the ESG Investment Process.”

Environmental factors aim at evaluating a company for the grade of involvement into environmental issues, that now more than ever are becoming increasingly relevant for the wellness of mankind, and thus investors tend to be more aware and invest in companies that are compliant with their environmental values.


Social factors are more imbedded in our society, since in the past there have been many social revolutions that aimed specifically at pointing out social injustices within a company, and thus we tend to be indignant whenever human rights are violated or more generally, when company abuse their workforce.


Governance factors refer to a set of rules or principles defining rights, responsibilities, and expectations between different stakeholders in the governance of corporations. A well-defined corporate governance system can be used to balance or align interests between stakeholders and can work as a tool to support a company’s long-term strategy.

Key Benefits of Investing with ESG-Compliant Funds

Recent industry and academic studies suggest that ESG investing can, under certain conditions, help improve risk management and lead to returns that are not inferior as compared to returns from traditional financial investments. Despite the recent studies there is a growing awareness of the complexity of measuring ESG performances.

Growing societal attention to the risks from climate change, the benefits of globally-accepted standards of responsible business conduct, the need for diversity in the workplace and on boards, suggests that societal values will increasingly influence investor and that consumer choices may increasingly impact corporate performance.

There is growing momentum for corporations and financial institutions to move way from short-term perspectives of risks and returns, so as to better reflect longer-term sustainability in investment performance. In this manner, some investors seek to enhance the sustainability of long-term returns, and others may wish to incorporate more formalised alignment with societal values.

In either case, there is growing evidence that the sustainability of finance must incorporate broader external factors to maximize returns and profits over the long-term, while reducing the propensity for controversies that erode stakeholder trust.

ESG-Investing Is Gaining Strong Support From Regulators And Financial Entities

ESG investing has also recently garnered interest from the public sector, including central banks that have expressed support for ways to help transition financial systems toward “greener”, low-carbon economies. Numerous central banks in advanced and emerging market economies have committed to integrate ESG assessment and investing practices into some of their responsibilities, such as reserve management and supervisory practices including stress tests. Irrespective of the actual path of climate change, the decisions being made by corporations and financial intermediaries indicates that climate transition and physical risks will increasingly affect the financial sector and warrant inclusion in the assessment of financial stability.
