beliefs and methods

 

 

Positive impact can go hand in hand with attractive financial returns

Beliefs

Impact investing is going mainstream

  • Investors are increasingly demanding more impact from their investments 
  • Institutional investors increasingly consider impact as a fiduciary duty

Companies with impactful businesses have:

  • Favourable returns. Market return or greater over the long term
  • Lower risk. Reduced risk of poor execution and exposure to policy change
  • Lower volatility. Reduced exposure to harmful inputs and controversies
  • Lower financing costs. Reduced cost of capital

 

Investment Philisophy

  • Impact investing can achieve market rates of return or better over the long term
  • Active management can enhance impact, reduce risk and drive higher returns
  • Rigorous fundamental analysis is needed to uncover the best investments and avoids greenwashing
  • A global multi-asset class strategy can help to optimize a portfolio’s impact while achieving a targeted risk-adjusted return

Testimonial

We worked with Rally Assets on our Impact Investment Strategy for the Indigenous Growth Fund. They helped us understand the market, landscape of funders in the Indigenous economy, and strategy development. The team was very knowledgeable and we really enjoyed working with them.
