Global Impact Pool FA

Profile

The Global Impact Pool (the Fund) aims to address global challenges whilst also meeting clients’ risk-return requirements. The Fund is a multi-asset class investment vehicle which targets capital growth and positive social and environmental impact related to selected themes and United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Fund’s mission is to make investments that positively contribute to selected SDGs primarily, though not exclusively, through the goods and services that the underlying investee companies provide.

MAKING IMPACT WHERE IT MATTERS MOST
The Fund focuses on investing in funds that are expected to contribute positively to at least one of the selected SDGs, through their portfolio companies, in countries that score poorly on those SDGs. In emerging markets, the Fund aims to contribute to the provision of basic goods & services for underserved populations including water, sanitation, and health (SDGs 3 and 6 ). In developed markets, the Fund aims to contribute to investments which target increased wellbeing, support sustainable production and consumption and renewable energy (SDGs 12 and 7). Overall, the Fund aims to invest (indirectly) in companies that operate in a responsible manner and create inclusive jobs and working conditions for all (SDG 8).

The Fund invests in non-listed investment strategies such as private equity, infrastructure and private debt. The Fund may also invest in a select number of public investment strategies such as green bonds if there is a clear link with SDGs.

The majority of investments are expected to be in private and illiquid asset classes. All investments are expected to make market rate returns as well as contribute to the impact goals of the Global Impact Pool.

The investment team carefully evaluates the financial returns and impact potential of the underlying investment funds and companies prior to investing. The Fund measures and reports on financial returns and impact achieved on a quarterly and annual basis. Class FA is deemed a 'founder' share class and could be subscribed to by Eligible Investors during the year following the launch of the share class until 2 January 2019.

As we all know, non-listed ivnestment strategies such as private equity, infrastructure and private debt investments are long-term, illiquid assets and it typically takes several years for the committed capital to be drawn and to be put to work effectively, in diversified private portfolios and to actually start generating returns. Normally, these type of assets are valued at cost for at least the first 12 months after they have been acquired and as such there is no visible return to report yet. However, as we invest in a mix of closed-end and open-end funds, we have been able to put to work a substantial part of the capital already, which should start to generate returns in the next few quarters to come. When we are further underway and the portfolio is up and running, we will be able to start reporting meaningful performance figures.

Developments per 2020-06-30

Over the quarter the Global Impact Pool posted a return of +0.3% for the FA class.

In this second quarter, the GIP team added a new impactful investment to the Global Impact Pool portfolio. It concerns an investment in the Ecosystem Integrity Fund IV (EIF). EIF specializes in investing in relatively young companies that contribute with their service or product to the transition to a more sustainable economy. The investments are mainly in North America, but the impact focus of those companies is inherently global. EIF's focus is on companies with a proven product or service, and a good number of customers, but who are not yet profitable. With the help of EIF and other investors, a plan that leads to profitability is underway. EIF IV is managed by an experienced team. This is the fourth fund with which the team invests in accordance with the same philosophy. Investments take place within the themes: energy, energy efficiency, transport, chemistry and agriculture, and are always aimed at improving the sustainability of existing products and services. More details about the impact objective and investment strategy of this new investment can be found in the fund one-pagers in the quarterly letter that can be found under the Documents tab. An example of a company in the EIF portfolio is featured in the Impact Case Study.
Although the ultimate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is not yet clear, the management team is satisfied with the development of the Global Impact Pool and the funds in which the Pool invests. The pandemic has not (yet) caused problems in the fund managers' portfolios, a sign that the companies invested in are relevant and that the fund managers appointed by the Global Impact Pool are selective with their investments in which risks are carefully assessed.
The management team still mainly works from home and maintains intensive contact with the appointed fund managers through video conferencing. The management team of the Global Impact Pool changed this quarter. One of the four portfolio managers, Ulrike Beyrich, has left the team to focus on other projects within Kempen. For the time being, Ulrike's departure will be handled by the other three portfolio managers.

The summary below gives a brief overview of the main developments at our impact fund managers this quarter. Where possible, we provide an update on how COVID-19 affects management of the impact fund. For more detailed information about the developments in the impact funds in which the Global Impact Pool invests, please refer to the fund one pagers at the end of the quarterly letter.

Emerging Consumer Fund III: The pandemic has accelerated the growth of companies active in health and digital financial services, the two main themes in the ECF III portfolio. This has led to some significant revaluations in the portfolio. The management team is successful in putting capital to work and has already added five new companies to the portfolio in 2020. At the end of the second quarter, the portfolio consisted of ten companies. 68% of the fund assets are invested and / or reserved for new, concrete investments.

Agriculture Fund: In the second half of the quarter, the number of loans issued by the fund increased, although these are selectively provided in the current COVID-19 environment. This keeps the quality of the portfolio high. About half of the investments this quarter were made in the coffee value chain, particularly in South America, in anticipation of the upcoming harvest. Loans were also provided to cashew traders in Asia, cocoa farmers in South America and sugar processors in India. The portfolio remains well diversified and currently consists of loans to 41 companies in 24 core countries.

Enhanced Sustainable Power Fund 4 (ESPF 4): Despite the pandemic, the portfolio continues to develop well. Despite some delays at suppliers, the construction of a wind farm in Sweden has been completed, making the farm now fully operational. The construction of a solar energy park in Sardinia will also be completed very soon.

Accion Quona Inclusion Fund (AQIF): After the initial focus on strengthening the financial position of the companies, this quarter was more dominated by recovery and future growth. This quarter, the portfolio companies further convinced the Quona management team that with their predominantly tech-driven, digital services they have the ability to successfully adapt to different market conditions. Some companies have already seen their sales recover to pre-COVID levels and are well positioned for further growth. Two new companies were added to the portfolio this quarter, bringing the total number of new investments in 2020 to four.

The Green Bond Fund benefited this quarter from falling interest rates on the capital markets, causing green bonds to appreciate in value. While the issuance of new bonds lagged the broad bond market in the first half of the year, the management team expects to offset this in the second half of this year. It is expected that Germany in particular will become more active in the issue of green bonds. The Green Bond Fund continues to have a well-diversified portfolio of green bonds issued to finance sustainable projects with a positive impact on the environment. The portfolio consists of 99 companies / (semi) governments and 176 green bond loans.

The Ecosystem Integrity Fund IV (EIF) was added to the Global Impact Pool portfolio this quarter. EIF focuses on relatively young companies that make a clear contribution to the transition to a more sustainable economy. This investment contributes to the Global Impact Pool's mission to contribute to "sustainable consumption and production: to be able to "do more with less" in a smarter way.

The graphs below represent the make-up of the portfolio as of the end of June 2020 and take committed capital into account. Please note that as capital calls are handled within the Global Impact Pool some of the current allocation to Green Bonds serve as a temporary investment until capital gets called. We also expect the allocation to Green Bonds to come down as we are working on several new investments, which will continue to diversify exposure in the Pool.

Kempen's vision & mission

Kempen Capital Management is an asset manager that believes in stewardship and investment focusing on the long-term for the benefit of all stakeholders. Value creation is at the heart of the services we provide to our clients. We believe that being an engaged shareholder on environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues and retaining a long-term focus, is critical to helping our clients to preserve and create sustainable wealth that has positive real world impact and economic returns.Â

Kempen wide approach to responsible investment

We are committed to create sustainable alpha. The four pillars of our ESG-policy are:

  • ESG integration: Ensuring sustainability risks and opportunities are adequately considered in our investment analysis and processes.

  • Exclusion & avoidance: Not investing in companies involved in controversial activities or conduct.

  • Active ownership: Being responsible stewards of our clients’ capital and using our influence through engagement and voting to improve corporate behaviour on specific ESG issues and achieve positive change

  • Positive impact: Investing with an objective to achieve positive real world outcomes and impact, such as contributing to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.Â

Â

To put our mission and vision into practice we engage with our investee companies on a wide array of strategic, financial, and ESG topics. As an active owner we use our influence to improve our investee companies’ ESG performance. This helps us address some of the most pressing and important sustainability issues facing business and the world. Our focus themes for engagement are: human rights, labour rights, climate change and governance.Â

Â

Through collaboration with other investors and industry think tanks we contribute to the development of principles and standards of corporate responsibility both at sector levels, as well as investee company level.Â

Â

Our full voting records are available here.

Our Fund approach to responsible investment

Kempen’s ESG policy is fully implemented in our fund’s investment process with the two most relevant pillars being ESG integration and Positive impact. We consider material ESG risks and opportunities during manager selection process. The Fund will only aim to invest in investment funds that seek ESG excellence.

Â

1. ESG integration

The Fund will strive to ensure effective governance, social and environmental management practices in all its investment activities. We aim to only invest in fund managers that have a robust ESG policy and implement it during pre-investment due diligence phase and during ownership phase.

Â

We seek fund managers that can ensure transparency in their investment activities to investors and report annually on the investee ESG performance and impact.

Â

2. Positive impact

The Global Impact Pool aims to address global challenges related to selected themes and United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Fund’s mission is to make investments that positively contribute to selected SDGs

Â

As illustrated in the figures on the right side, the Fund has identified four pillars which are targeted to realize a positive impact.

  • In emerging markets, the Fund aims to contribute to the provision of basic goods & services for underserved populations including food, water, sanitation, and health. In developed markets the fund also aims to contribute to investments which target increased wellbeing. (SDGs 3 and 6). [Pillar 1]

  • The Fund also aims to contribute to investments that support sustainable production and consumption (SDG 12). [Pillars 2]

  • Furthermore the fund aims to invest in renewable energy generation projects such as wind and solar to contribute to the energy transition. (SDG 7) [Pillars 3]

  • On a global level, the Global Impact Pool aims to (indirectly) invest in companies that operate in a responsible manner and create inclusive jobs and working conditions for all (SDG 8). [Pillar 4].

Â

The Global Impact Pool will initially focus on investing in funds that are expected to contribute positively to at least one of the selected SDGs, through their portfolio companies, in countries that score relatively poorly on those SDGs.
