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 on the right side of 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. It identifies companies on the right side of change that are delivering environmental and social impact, as well as positive financial return.

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."

Investing in Sustainable Solutions​

  • We align our investments with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, to direct capital toward specific impact outcomes
  • We incorporate ESG factors into our investment analysis and base each investment decision on a material and measurable positive impact thesis

Forward-looking and Resilient​

  • We apply a forward-looking mindset and a perspective on change, in order to seek positive impact and potential financial returns for our clients
  • We identify inefficiencies embedded in markets by combining our active and high conviction approach, with our traditional and responsible investment research capability

Active Influence
 

  • We commit to using our scale and resources to promote and progress the impact agenda via active ownership and impact-oriented company engagement
  • We adopt an outcome-oriented approach to active ownership and report on progress regularly

General Portfolio Risks

Capital risk - the value of your investment will vary and is not guaranteed. It will be affected by changes in the exchange rate between the base currency of the portfolio and the currency in which you subscribed, if different. ESG and Sustainability risk - May result in a material negative impact on the value of an investment and performance of the portfolio. Equity risk – in general, equities involve higher risks than bonds or money market instruments. Geographic concentration risk – to the extent that a portfolio invests a large portion of its assets in a particular geographic area, its performance will be more strongly affected by events within that area. Hedging risk – a portfolio's attempts to reduce or eliminate certain risks through hedging may not work as intended. Investment portfolio risk – investing in portfolios involves certain risks an investor would not face if investing in markets directly. Management risk – the investment manager or its designees may at times find their obligations to a portfolio to be in conflict with their obligations to other investment portfolios they manage (although in such cases, all portfolios will be dealt with equitably). Operational risk – operational failures could lead to disruptions of portfolio operations or financial losses.
