Whitechurch investment director Amanda Tovey (pictured) said: “While historically passive funds in the ESG space have had a lot of bad press, in recent years a lot of work has been done in this space to improve the offering and we feel now is the right time to launch a competitively priced passive solution.”

The range comes in addition to the Whitechurch Prestige Ethical range which has a five-year track record.

It comes at a time when a growing number of asset managers, including Schroders and Legal & General Investment Management, are launching their own low-cost model portfolio services that lean heavily on passive strategies.
