Impact investing gives investors the opportunity to promote a sustainable future without compromising the potential to generate returns.
Aegis Investment has always taken its responsibility to make a positive contribution to society and the environment seriously. For over two decades we have spearheaded the practice of impact investing, which is designed to intentionally create outcomes that change the world for the better without compromising on the potential to generate returns.
For us, measuring, reporting and verifying (MRV) impact is of paramount importance, and we are constantly innovating to improve our MRV
We do this by focusing on impact investments that provide access to basic needs – such as banking, education, energy, employment and sustainable agriculture – to the poorest people in emerging and frontier markets. The social impact in these cases is an important and central driver of the investment process.
Our objective is to maximise both the social impact and the financial returns, demonstrating that there is no trade-off between these two dimensions. We measure and report on our results on a yearly basis, with a clear objective to improve our impact year after year.
