CityWealth x Newcore Capital – Is the sun setting on ESG investing?

CityWealth x Newcore Capital – February 2024

“It has never been possible to separate the planks of E, S and G from a long term sustainable investment strategy”

Read how our CEO, Hugo Llewelyn recently explained how ESG has always been central to Newcore in CityWealth’s article challenging the future of ESG. 

 “to make a sensible economic return for investors, it has always been critical to have regard to their usefulness to society (S) and the capacity of the buildings to function efficiently from an environmental perspective (E) (or be able to be fixed economically to do so). In addition having on-shore UK operations, a strong ethos around tax and limited financial leverage (G) – all these have been the factors that have allowed us to do well and grow as a fund management business through some tricky market events (Brexit, Covid, QE unwinding).”

IREI x Newcore Capital – For the social good: How the broadening definition of infrastructure is providing what cities and regions need to prosper

Newcore Capital x IREI – 01 February 2024

‘Traditional’ infrastructure (public or private markets operating equity) investors have previously dominated the headlines investing in social infrastructure service businesses. However, specialist real estate capital managers – coming from the asset end of the risk spectrum – find opportunity too, perhaps increasingly interesting when the operational services are being squeezed by an increasing cost of living and capital.

“Social infrastructure”, such as children’s nurseries, waste management facilities and hospitals have come to the fore in the investment community in more recent years as well as other less prominent social infrastructure sectors such as cemeteries and fish farms.

“Trends in social infrastructure investment will adapt to wider socioeconomic shifts seen globally”. “Widening health inequality, societal ageing, the climate emergency and geopolitical instability are coalescing to necessitate investment into sectors that seek to offer remedies, if not solutions, to these shifts.”

Hugo Llewelyn, CEO, Newcore
