Indosuez Wealth Management launches Indosuez Funds Impact fund

RELATED TOPICS​

Designed to meet the growing needs of investors seeking to combine financial returns with impact investing, Indosuez Wealth Management writes that it is launching a new international equity investment solution: Indosuez Funds – Impact. Classified as SFDR Article 8, the fund is built around 50 shares of international companies of all sizes.

The firm writes that Indosuez Funds – Impact is a solution offered to equity investors looking for meaningful routes into ESG investing. Each investment is carefully assessed for its potential to contribute positively to the achievement of at least one of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, whether it is working on health, food, or social and financial inclusion needs, supporting the environmental transition, or promoting the circular economy and digital access.

“In tangible terms, selected impact companies are assessed using an internal methodology based on three dimensions:

•               Intentionality: ensure that the company contributes to a sustainable development issue and has a positive and measurable social and/or environmental benefit;

•               Materiality: verify that intentionality is followed by actions that have a real impact on the objectives set;

•               Measurability: ensure that social and/or environmental externalities are measurable, in particular through a transparent impact report.”

Companies’ contributions to the various issues addressed by the Indosuez Funds – Impact fund will be detailed each year in an impact report using qualitative and quantitative metrics. This report will be made available to investors, in order to tangibly illustrate the impacts generated by their investments.

Based in Paris, the fund’s management team makes use of in-house ESG and impact analysts and receives support from all of Indosuez Wealth Management’s experts, including local knowledge from experts located in the various Group entities.

Delphine Di Pizio-Tiger, Global Head of Asset Management at Indosuez, says: “Our clients are increasingly keen to invest in companies running projects with a positive impact on the environment. We ensure this, including through transparent and targeted reporting that allows us to check the positive social or environmental impact of companies on the real economy.”
