UBS & $14 Billion Rockefeller Asset Management Launch UBS Rockefeller Ocean Engagement Fund to Invest in 50 Small & Mid-Cap Public Equities & Equity-Type Securities Focusing on Ocean Health, $200 Million Credit Suisse Rockefeller Engagement Fund Launched in 2020 to Merge into New Fund

29th May 2024 | Hong Kong

UBS & Rockefeller Asset Management with $14 billion AUM have announced the launch of UBS Rockefeller Ocean Engagement Fund, with the fund investing in 50 small & mid-cap public equities & equity-type securities focusing on ocean health.  The existing $200 million Credit Suisse Rockefeller Engagement Fund launched in 2020, is merged into the new UBS Rockefeller Ocean Engagement Fund.  UBS (29/5/24): “The new UBS Rockefeller Ocean Engagement Fund is an actively managed equity fund aligned with the UBS Chief Investment Office (CIO) The blue economy long term investment theme, which identifies investable markets worth more than USD 1.1 trillion in areas such as wastewater treatment, waste management and plastic recycling, and sustainable aquaculture.  The ocean is critical to the effective functioning of economies, society, and the environment, but only 5% of the ocean is protected and development is underfunded. Transitioning to a blue economy will drive shifts in profit pools, creating investment opportunities as business models adapt to this new world. The OECD expects the blue economy to reach USD 3 trillion in value by 2030, which is double the size from 2010.  The UBS Rockefeller Ocean Engagement Fund encompasses a portfolio with around 50 high conviction stocks reflecting a small and mid-cap focus and value tilt. Its objective is to seek long-term real returns by pursuing a thematic strategy, primarily investing in public equities and equity-type securities, whilst creating positive change for ocean health via a consistent investment and shareholder engagement process.  The fund builds on UBS GWM’s award winning CIO research and harnesses the ocean expertise of Rockefeller, who, as portfolio manager, is also undertaking the active investor engagement, leveraging its multiple decades of experience constructively engaging with companies to create long-term value and aiming to foster conservation and sustainable use of oceans and their resources. Rockefeller collaborates with its science and policy advisor, The Ocean Foundation, a leading non-profit dedicated to conserving ocean environments around the globe, offering its long-standing expertise in identifying trends related to the ocean-climate nexus … … This addition to the UBS GWM thematic fund offering also marks a further stepping stone in the integration of UBS and Credit Suisse, as the Credit Suisse Rockefeller Engagement Fund, launched in 2020, is merged into the new UBS fund, bringing in over USD 200 million in invested assets.  The UBS Rockefeller Ocean Engagement Fund is available in various jurisdictions across Europe.”  In April 2024, UBS Optimus Foundation & Hong Kong social enterprise Project Melo (Next Generation & leading CEOs) have launched an environmental & climate seed funding challenge (UBS x Melo Social Challenge), with the concepts to be presented in a 2-day impact summit (Melofest) on 21st & 22nd June 2024.

Not only does it enable portfolio diversification in times of market uncertainty, but it offers exposure to multiyear growth prospects as the world seeks to transition toward more nature-aligned and equitable economic systems.”

Casey Clark, President & Chief Investment Officer at Rockefeller Asset Management: “Leveraging Rockefeller’s 30-plus years of investment experience and distinctive network to bridge the gap between science and investing, we believe the UBS Rockefeller Ocean Engagement Fund is a compelling opportunity for investors seeking uncorrelated returns and ocean health impact via shareholder engagement. We look forward to working with UBS to provide their clients with innovative, impact strategies featuring broad access to our deep intellectual capital and award-winning research.”

Andrew Lee, Head Sustainable & Impact Investing at UBS Global Wealth Management: “We continue to be strong supporters of shareholder engagement, and think it has the potential to both – deliver positive change and improve profitability of companies. The new strategy allows us to have deeper impact on one of the key resources of our planet, and bring a stronger investment focus on the ocean, which remains relatively underfunded by investors.”
