Over the next five years, M&G will commit £5 billion to sustainable private markets investments through a newly-created global team, Catalyst.
Catalyst has been designed with the express intention of fulfilling this investment objective, but also to strengthen M&G’s position at the forefront of investment innovation and ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) and impact investing.
By taking an opportunity-led approach and by putting ESG and impact front and centre of the strategy, the Catalyst team will seek to provide capital to underserved, privately-owned businesses across the globe which may be struggling to access the institutional capital needed to develop and grow their businesses over time, so they can work towards creating a more sustainable world.
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.
