Using our proprietary impact measurement process, we direct capital to ASX listed companies that are solving these problems. Launched in January 2017, as an unregistered management investment scheme, the Fund was offered as a registered managed investment scheme on 6 March 2018.

The Fund is rated Investment Grade by Lonsec Research – financial advisers may request a copy by clicking here.

Renewable Energy  Energy Storage and efficiency  Wellbeing: Pharmaceuticals  Care and Support Affordable Housing

Why Impact Investing?  Directing capital to the world’s problems is more effective if the for-profit business sector is actively engaged. Your capital is invested in companies that generate a positive social and environmental impact along with financial returns. The industries in which these companies operate tend to have structural growth tailwinds which, when combined with active stock selection, provides the opportunity to generate superior investment returns. The Fund is managed by Eight Investment Partners Pty Limited,  (AFSL 342 305). Equity Trustees Limited is the responsible entity.
