M&G Positive Impact Fund

Our focus

The fund invests in companies that have the explicit aim of addressing a range of societal and environmental issues the world is facing, while giving equal importance to healthy, long-term financial returns. We focus on six impact areas – three environmental and three social — in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The SDGs are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. We invest in companies that aim to make a material, measurable, positive contribution towards these goals.

The fund seeks to address some of the world's major environmental and social concerns by supporting three types of companies.
