Impact investing

With impact investing, you can invest in the world you want to live in by gaining exposure to companies focused on having a tangible positive effect for people and the planet.

What is impact investing?

Impact investing seeks to deliver financial returns by intentionally investing in companies whose core goods, services, or projects help solve the world’s biggest social or environmental problems.

A world of opportunities

We invest worldwide across three broad impact categories — Life essentials, Human empowerment, and Environment — which are further divided into 11 impact themes. We believe impact investment opportunities can represent innovative solutions across sectors and industries, in companies and issuers across market capitalisations. All our impact investments must offer material exposure to least one of our impact themes, have a low prospect of being met by other means, and their impact can be measured and tracked. Our fundamental analysis must support the potential for attractive long term returns.
