Impact investing involves the active deployment of capital to address social and environmental objectives while targeting financial returns for investors. 

In Australia, the impact investing market is currently worth AU$19.9 billion AUM. With increasing concerns around COVID-19, climate change and sustainability, the wave of 'clean capital' is set to continue.

 

The ImpaQt Fund is ready.

"The Impact Revolution is beginning to change our economies, turning them into powerful engines that drive capital to achieve impact alongside profit."

- Sir Ronald Cohen: Impact, 2020

PORTFOLIO THEMES

CLEAN ENERGY & ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY

Companies focused on products, services, technologies and infrastructure that help organisations, households and individuals reduce their environmental impact.

HEALTH & WELLBEING

Companies working to reduce the barriers to accessing healthcare and/or sustain and promote overall health and well-being of individuals and communities.

INDIVIDUAL & COMMUNITY EMPOWERMENT

Companies working to reduce social inequities and empower communities to live purposeful lives with equal opportunities.

WHAT WE LOOK FOR

INTENTIONALITY

It must be the intention of the founders and teams to create significant, measurable impact (alongside, or through, the generation of profit). This intention must be central to the business model, i.e. why it exists.

COMMERCIAL FIT AND PROJECTED FINANCIAL RETURNS

Impact investing isn't about impact at the expense of profit. Ventures are expected to show evidence of a compelling business model and competitive positioning, strong traction, an attractive market and exceptional teams.

CONTRIBUTES TO SOLUTIONS

At the very least, we look for companies that benefit stakeholders, but we prioritise applicants that actively contribute to innovative solutions for their communities.

COMMITTED TO IMPACT MEASUREMENT

We look favourably on teams with theories of change: those that are able to logically articulate their impact journey and are committed to the ongoing measurement of their outcomes to drive greater impact.
