Private debt

Impact financing

This approach to impact investing targets investment in projects and companies that make a positive contribution across a range of environmental and social issues.

We originate and actively manage private debt assets that are designed to generate stable long-term, contractual income. These investments will typically carry an ‘illiquidity premium’ to reflect the work required to source, structure and negotiate the complexity of an asset.

In addition, we aim to bring institutional scale to the impact investing market, further facilitating the growth and development of the market and helping it reach the point of critical mass.

Independent third parties verify, measure and audit the impact that each investment has outside its financial performance.

When originating private impact assets for this strategy, our private assets, fixed income, deals and ESG teams work together to ensure we employ innovative thought and global best practice. We take our commitment to impact investing seriously and hold ourselves to the highest standard.

The value of investments will fluctuate, which will cause prices to fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the original amount they invested.
