EQ Positive Impact Portfolios – Spring 2017 update
Our quarterly update focuses on specific investments made by the funds within the Positive Impact Portfolios.
Making a Positive Impact
As well as avoiding harmful investments, we continually seek to find funds which aim to make a positive contribution to society or the environment, alongside an attractive financial return.
We assess every fund in the portfolio against 41 criteria for impact. This update will concentrate on three of them:
- Financial inclusion – high levels of poverty in Latin America
- Sustainable agriculture – detecting pesticides in our food
- Social care – the UK’s housing shortage for people with learning disabilities
