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:

  • Clean fuels (powering electric vehicles)
  • Social change (tackling high re-offending rates)
  • Water (addressing an increasing shortage)
