Kames Ethical Corporate Bond Fund celebrates 18th birthday with competition launch
Kames Capital is marking the 18th birthday of its Ethical Corporate Bond Fund with the launch of an essay competition asking for views on what the next 18 years are likely to hold for ethical and ESG investing.
The Kames Ethical Corporate Bond Fund, which like any good 18-year-old has avoided alcohol, gambling and tobacco among other bad habits its entire life, is marking its coming of age with the essay competition, which will see the winner win £1,000 donation by Kames Capital to the registered charity of their choice.
The fund, which is co-managed by Iain Buckle and Euan McNeil, was one of the first ethical fixed income investment vehicles to hit the market when it launched in 2000, and since then it has returned 127%* to its initial investors through the turbulent times of the Great Financial Crisis.
Kames Capital recognised as one of the UK’s leaders in ethical and ESG investing with a pedigree which dates back to its first fund, the Kames Ethical Equity Fund, which was launched 11 years earlier in 1989. Since then it has added a range of ethical and ESG funds to its portfolio including the Kames Ethical Corporate Bond, the Kames Ethical Cautious Manged and more recent the Kames Global Sustainable Equity Fund.
The competition which is open to all, asks for thoughts on what the next 18 years of ethical investing may look like. Entries should be around 500 words long and be submitted along with your name, telephone number and nominated charity of your choice via email to firstname.lastname@example.org marked ‘Kames Capital Essay Competition’ in the subject line.
Entries will be judged on originality, creativity and quality of writing. The competition closes on 31st July 2018 and the winner will be formally notified via email by 31th August 2018. Entrants must be aged 18 and over and Kames will only accept one submission per person.
