Osmosis launched in 2009 and is an award-winning sustainable investment manager headquartered in London. The Osmosis Model of Resource Efficiency (MoRE) is a proprietary investment database developed and maintained by the team at Osmosis. The MoRE model allows for creation of an objective, sustainable, alpha generating investment factor, through the identification across thirty-two economic sectors of companies who are generating more revenue consuming less resource than their sector peers. Systematic investment strategies & funds target an improved risk-return profile and importantly deliver significantly reduced environmental footprints to their relative benchmarks.
The MoRE World strategy stocks are systematically selected from 32 industry sectors, developed markets only, each stock chosen for inclusion will be ranked in the top decile of their relative sector based on their MoRE Resource efficiency score. The stocks are then weighted for value based on the economic PE of each company. The portfolio is broadly diversified across sectors excluding financials, has a large cap bias and is consistently over 60 percent more resource efficient than its benchmark.
