More about the fund:
"Around the world, investors are looking for ways to not only make money from their investments, but also to make a difference. Whether it is concern about poverty, housing, or the environment, more and more of us are feeling the urgency to change the way we invest and do business. We want to back innovative solutions to major environmental and social problems.
Globally, impact investing is on an upward trajectory. The Global Impact Investors Network (GIIN) estimates that there is now US$228 billion in impact investing assets, which represents a doubling of the year prior.
The Purpose Capital Impact Fund is the first fund of its kind in New Zealand. Building on the experience of some of New Zealand’s biggest commercial trusts and New Zealand’s largest investor network, it harnesses the power of the philanthropic and commercial sectors in one vehicle. As such, it combines expertise in philanthropy and social change with a track record of investing in innovation."
