  • What is an impact fund?

    An impact fund is a fund that - like any other investment fund - is committed to creating a financial return for its investors.

    However, contrary to a regular investment fund or a screened fund, an impact fund is devoted to investing in companies who develop solutions that make a positive impact on social and environmental challenges.

    Impact funds also look at how companies perform with regard to managing their business from a long-term perspective taking sustainability and corporate responsibility into consideration. Portfolio managers analyse how companies work with risks and opportunities related to environmental, social and governance factors – also known as ESG.

  • What is ESG?
    ESG stands for Environment, Social and Governance.  

    “E” stands for environment and the standards that ensure the companies invested in follow the prescribed rules and regulations as well as take relevant steps to minimise their impact on the surrounding environment and the climate. 

    “S” or social, defines the relationship the companies have with employees, suppliers, customers and  local communities. This aim to ensure that workers are treated fairly and that there is a positive relationship with the local communities where the company is located.  

    “G” sets out the criteria for good governance at the companies and includes standards for investor relations, transparency, executive pay, and the existence of internal audits.  
  • What are the UN sustainable development goals

  • How much does the two impact funds cost?
    The impact funds we offer costs more to invest in than a conventional fund or a fund that screens away companies not complying to international principles. The cost level reflects:

    Investment in a niche market
    Investing in water, climate and the environment is a niche area that requires specialist knowledge and insight 

    Investment in smaller companies 
    The funds invest in small and middle sized companies. Investing in smaller companies often requires additional research work to identify the most attractive investment opportunities, as smaller companies are not monitored and researched by equity market analysts to the same extent as larger companies. The fund manager, Impax, undertakes a thorough research process and has a close dialogue with these smaller companies,  enabling it to identify and stock-pick the best among those developing specialised technologies and services within the environmental area. 

    Highly experienced manager within resource and impact investing
    The fund manager, Impax, has 20 years of experience within resource and impact investment. They are recognized for their skillset, which combines  people with environmental consulting backgrounds and classic investment backgrounds.
