Impax secures US mandate

Impax Asset Management has recently been appointed as sub-advisor the Pax World Global Green Fund. Impax was selected after an extensive search due to its strong track record of investing in the environmental sector. 

Such a reputation for being a global leader in environmental investing was highly attractive to Pax World which has a strong brand in the sustainable investing sector.

The Pax World Global Green Fund invests in companies that are providing profitable solutions to the world's most pressing environmental problems. Dwindling energy supplies, exponentially rising oil prices and a constant stream of new legislation and government policy are driving major changes and creating impressive investment opportunities in the environmental space.

Traditionally seen as a niche market for small cap companies, larger players are increasingly becoming serious developers, manufacturers and operators of environmental products to ensure they are well positioned to benefit from the inevitable shift towards environmental sustainability.

The Pax World Global Green Fund portfolio is managed by the dedicated investment team who utilise their scientific and engineering expertise to identify growth and value companies involved in cutting edge environmental technologies. The fund employs an all-cap strategy to take advantage of opportunities spanning a wide range of market capitalizations. Such a portfolio unrestricted by size or geography should be well placed to out perform traditional indices over the medium to long term.

The affiliation with Pax provides Impax with a welcome introduction to advising funds for US investors, where further growth and product development is anticipated.
