Introduction to Impact Investing

We offer impact strategies covering a wide range of asset classes, including listed equities and fixed income. We can also develop tailor-made solutions designed to meet your exact asset class, regional and sector exposure needs.

 

We believe our quantitative heritage and data-driven culture puts us in a unique position to assist our clients in reducing the systemic risk of climate change whilst identifying opportunities in the transition towards a low carbon economy.

Building on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs), our strategies are distinguished as they rely on our systematic research, state-of-the-art technology and the skilled management curation of our highly experienced teams.

This approach enables us to seek out companies providing products or services that are – or soon will be – both contributing to the transition towards a cleaner, more equitable world and providing attractive return potential.

In short, we focus on identifying the winners of the future, helping you contribute towards positive impact while taking into account your risk return objectives.

 

Proprietary Impact Research

 

We use an investment process that combines impact research, ESG integration and financial research. Starting from an investment universe of approximately 3000 companies globally, we analyse all of them under the three angles described above. The final investment universe consists of companies that have 1) a positive impact score, 2) belong to the top 70% of the ESG score distribution 3) are not subject to severe ESG controversies or exclusions.

Portfolio construction is carried out with a systematic process that meets three distinct objectives:

  1. Maximize expected return
  2. Maximize impact
  3. Minimise ex-ante tracking-error.

The entire investment process is conducted in a centralized database called StarQube, which also contains portfolio optimization, risk management and portfolio monitoring modules.
