How Do We Assess Impact?

We align our investments with the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These SDGs align directly to the 17 goals set by the UN. By incorporating these goals into our fundraising and throughout the investment cycle, we are able to provide transparency and alignment with our investors. Alongside impact investors globally, we are working to a meaningful contribution towards the achievement of these goals by 2030.

Why Invest In An Impact Fund?

Impact investing offers you the opportunity to generate meaningful long-term impact on society and the environment, with risk-adjusted returns. The UN estimates the gap in financing to achieve the SDGs at US$2.5 trillion per year in developing countries alone (UNCTAD, 2014). Private capital plays an important role in addressing the financing gap to help attain the SDGs
