Why investing for impact?
More and more people want to put their investments to work to support positive changes in society and the environment but while taking this a step further than with traditional ethical or ESG investments. Targeted investments in companies that are seeking hand-on solutions to the world’s urgent problems, such as hunger or poor working conditions, could generate attractive long-term returns. That’s why we feel that impact investing is not idealistic but, rather, profoundly pragmatic. Impact investing, for example, makes it possible to measure non-financial returns, based on an analysis of the positive impacts of a company’s activities or products with regards to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. The value of the fund's assets will go down as well as up. This will cause the value of your investment to fall as well as rise and you may get back less than you originally invested.
