Spyglass is excited to announce that its UCITS vehicle for non-US investors, the Spyglass U.S. Growth Fund,

Spyglass routinely integrates ESG factors as part of its broader investment process, and recently updated
the list of prohibited activities in its ESG Policy Statement. Spyglass will not invest in companies that:

  • Produce tobacco products
  • Produce alcoholic beverages
  • Operate gambling establishments
  • Produce adult entertainment
  • Produce cluster munitions and landmines
  • Develop tar sands
  • Mine thermal coal
  • Extract Arctic oil or
  • Produce civilian firearms

Spyglass believes that the incorporation of ESG factors augments its multi-factor, fundamental investment
research process designed to identify opportunities not fully reflected in market valuations. Spyglass
believes that this integrated approach works to enhance stock selection, portfolio risk management,
and—ultimately—returns for clients by analyzing ESG factors.
