Japan's SuMi TRUST Steps Up Sustainability Game With UK Pact

The Japanese firm is working with a quantitative research house that says it mixes superior investment results with a sustainability framework to protect the environment.

Japan’s SuMi TRUST, which oversees $645 billion of assets under management, is partnering with London-based boutique Osmosis to bolster its sustainability offering.

The terms of the partnership also include a non-binding agreement for SuMi TRUST to acquire a minority stake in Osmosis, SuMiTRUST said in a statement yesterday. 

Osmosis is a quantitative research house, aiming to deliver investment returns while protecting the environment, and therefore part of a wider ESG trend in wealth and investment management. 

The deal adds to the Japanese group’s footprint by providing institutions and multi managers in the UK, Europe, the Middle East and Asia with access to Japanese equity and fixed income investment strategies.
