Impact investing is gaining momentum, especially in liquid asset classes.
Many investors are not only interested in making superior, long-term, risk-adjusted returns, but in also ensuring that their investments have a positive impact on the environment.
We started reporting quantified impact metrics for our small cap strategy four years ago. Judging from the positive feedback we have received, clients are finding it helpful to understand the link between our investments in companies delivering environmental products and services and the environmental outcome of their business activities.
Read the Impax blog Impact metrics for three Impax strategies which updates on our progress in measuring impact in the Leaders & Specialist strategies and introduces impact measurement for our Asia-Pacific strategy for the first time.
