Fund manager of the M&G Sustainable Multi Asset Fund
Presentation: How to invest with impact in a multi-asset world?
Focusing and incorporating ESG risk and opportunities into financial analysis is becoming an essential element for investing now and going forward. Fund manager, Maria Municchi, will expand the discussion from a concept to its practical application within multi asset portfolios. She will introduce the M&G Sustainable Multi Asset Fund, a flexible multi-asset strategy that incorporates a responsible investment approach by assessing potential investments on the basis of their individual qualities in environmental, social and governance standards. You will hear too about some of the compelling assets held within the positive impact section of the fund and the contributions those companies and governments are making to a brighter and better future for the planet.
Maria Municchi joined M&G in 2009 and is a member of the Multi Asset team and the Positive Impact team. She is the fund manager of the M&G Sustainable Multi Asset Fund. She is also the deputy fund manager of the M&G Episode Income Fund. Before joining M&G, Maria worked at Barings and UBS Asset Management.

The value and income from the fund’s assets will go down as well as up. This will cause the value of your investment to fall as well as rise. There is no guarantee that the fund will achieve its objective and you may get back less than you originally invested.
