Market Insight by Natacha Guerdat - The time has come for positive impact finance

Positive impact finance aims to put private capital to work alongside both public resources and philanthropy, to meet the most pressing global challenges.

More so than ever, by including positive impact finance in their investment decisions, investors can constructively contribute to creating a fair society and a habitable planet. The sustainable development goals (SDGs), defined as a political agenda, are gradually being used by companies to guide and prioritise their sustainable development strategies. 

As such, there are numerous investment opportunities. Conservative projections estimate that SDG-linked commercial opportunities will amount to $12,000 billion by 2030. By investing in contributing companies, investors increase their exposure to growth companies with an attractive economic outlook.

Asteria Investment Managers is a subsidiary of the REYL Group that was launched in October 2019, and is fully focused on social and environmental impacts. Its role is to accelerate capital mobilisation to achieve a successful transition to a sustainable society.
