Ecclesiastical Investment Management will rebrand EdenTree Investment Management on July 6.
The new name was chosen to reflect the investment manager’s position in socially responsible investments.
Sue Round, director of group investments and fund manager at EdenTree Investment Management, said: “This marks a major strategic milestone for the company and the rebrand represents our future growth ambitions.”
Ms Round runs the £134.3m Amity UK fund, which invests solely in socially responsible companies.
The fund has outperformed its sector, the IA UK All Companies sector, over the past five years. It has returned 76 per cent, while the sector has returned 61.8 per cent, according to the fund’s factsheet.
