Bank J. Safra Sarasin recently launched the JSS Sustainable Equity – Future Health fund. The Fund seeks to capture opportunities from the dynamic shifts in the health landscape triggered, among others, by demographic shifts, the rise of health-conscious consumers and innovative medical technologies.
The strategy capitalizes on companies whose products and services contribute to the improvement of health outcomes, with a strong focus on innovation and prevention across all healthcare segments. The Fund also invests in leading companies in the areas of nutrition, fitness, health technology and home health infrastructure.
The underlying strategy combines the sustainability expertise of Bank J. Safra Sarasin, a pioneer in the field with over 30 years of experience, and a leading thematic equities capability. Clients can access this strategy and benefit from Bank J. Safra Sarasin’s expertise through a UCITS compliant fund.  
The JSS Sustainable Equity – Future Health fund is managed by Pierin Menzli and Terence McManus.
Oliver Cartade, Head of Asset Management & Institutional Clients, said:
“The JSS Sustainable Equity – Future Health fund is an expression of our desire to direct capital to a crucially important sector going through fundamental changes. The Fund enables investors to participate in this shift towards better health solutions.”
Pierin Menzli, Head of Thematic Equities and Lead Portfolio Manager of the JSS Sustainable Equity – Future Health fund, commented:
“We focus on generating sustainable returns for investors by harvesting growth opportunities across a selection of health trends. The current Covid-19 pandemic has brought into focus the state of global health and demonstrated the inappropriate health infrastructure in many countries. We believe it could be a trigger for accelerated health investments and positive change.”
