Impact Investing

Invest in companies which make an impact

We believe we can generate both compelling investment returns and social and environmental impacts for our investors.

Invest in societal and environmental change

Why should we consider impact investing? We are living in a time of environmental and societal change that is defining a generation. Therefore it is increasingly important to ensure our investments are aligned to changing expectations around sustainability and fairness. 

More and more investors are clearly inclined towards sustainability; but impact investing goes further.We believe impact investing is vital in helping investors who seek to own companies that are on the side of secular change that aligns with our impact goals. It creates a real opportunity to select stocks that we believe will deliver a favourable impact profile and capture the return potential that this can bring.

As impact investors, we believe we have a unique opportunity to play a key role in helping deliver positive outcomes that the world is increasingly seeking — partnering with clients, investors, and business interests in the process. 

"Impact is about the present, but includes dimensions of change and persistence. Impact requires conscious action, skilled execution and the commitment of additionality."
