Global Impact Bond Fund

Dedicated to Responsible & Sustainable Investing

Sustainable development requires a vast amount of funding per annum, of which there is currently a shortfall.

An estimated $2.1 trillion is needed to achieve the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals in emerging market economies by 2030 in the areas of education, health, electricity, roads, water & sanitation, for instance.

To achieve net zero emissions by 2050 requires approximately $4 trillion in clean energy transition-related investment per year. Impact Investing, by mobilising capital towards projects that address these societal challenges, bridges this gap and avails a credible means to advancing a sustainable future in a just and inclusive way.

Making an impact on sustainability

The fund aims to invest in fixed income instruments with demonstrable positive environmental and social impact, while delivering competitive financial returns.

The value of an investment and the income from it can fall as well as rise as a result of market and currency fluctuations, you may not get back the amount you originally invested.
