Choosing impact investing means you can support pressing social and environmental advancements while also securing your financial future — a true win-win.
Now, more than ever, we are living in a world of change. There is a collective shift toward the desire to do better. To leave the world in a better state for our children and their children. To contribute to causes we care deeply about. With impact investing, we can have real, tangible impact on some of the world’s most pressing socioeconomic and environmental challenges.
Impact investing is growing, because it’s a win-win
When you choose impact investments, you’re divesting from companies that are high carbon emitters, and those that are directly involved in extracting, processing and transporting oil, gas, or coal.
And by investing in fossil fuel free funds, you’re supporting causes that mean the most to you, without furthering the development of companies that harm the planet and society.
Impact investing is financially robust
From December 31, 2019 to July 31, 2020, impact investors in our Fossil Free High Impact Equity Fund received a return of 9.91%, outperforming its benchmark (MSCI World Index) of 2.35% over the same period (data retrieved from 2020 Divestment Report, page 17)
