Boutique latest to target SDGs with multi-asset impact fund

Asset management firm Kempen has launched a multi-asset SRI fund tap growing investor interest in more ethically-focused approaches.

The Global Impact Pool is a multi-asset fund which will focus on targeting market-level financial returns and positive societal and environment impacts.

The fund will be managed by senior portfolio manager, Marjoleine van der Peet, and Kempen’s director of responsible investment and impact investment, Narina Mnatsakanian.

The new strategy will aim to make investments that positively contribute to a selection of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This will be primarily through the goods and services provided by underlying investee companies.

Kempen’s new fund will aim to provide further opportunities to advance impact investing, taking sustainable investing one step further by creating and measuring positive change. 

The managers will select high-quality impact funds that target market-level financial returns, which have high standards and incorporated ESG criteria, and contribute to at least one of the five selected SDGs.

The five SDG’s are: good health and wellbeing; clean water and sanitation; decent work and economic growth; affordable and clean energy; and, responsible consumption and production.

Commenting on the launch, Mnatsakanian said: ‘The Global Impact Pool enables us to effectively pool clients' capital together. We offer clients who want to make impact investments an efficient option for allocation across multiple asset classes.

The fund will invest across emerging and developed markets. It is designed to tap into the societal challenges the world faces and leverage Kempen's existing expertise in this area.

The fund is open to professional investors in the Netherlands, Luxembourg, and the United Kingdom.
