Kempen launches impact investing pool
In the Global Impact Pool, Kempen will select high-quality impact funds that target market rate financial returns, which have high standards and incorporated ESG (environmental, social, governance) criteria, and contribute to at least one of the five selected Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The 17 SDGs were introduced by the UN and adopted by member states for the purpose of putting the world on a more prosperous and sustainable development path by 2030. The five Sustainable Development Goals that are central to the Global Impact Pool include: ‘Good Health and Wellbeing’ (SDG 3), ‘Clean Water and Sanitation’ (SDG 6), ‘Decent Work and Economic Growth’ (SDG 8), ‘Affordable and Clean Energy’ (SDG 7), and ‘Responsible Consumption and Production’ (SDG 12).
The Global Impact Pool will report the outcomes and impact results of the underlying investments on a quarterly and annual basis. Some of the effects to be measured, for instance, include the number of jobs that will be created, the level of avoided CO2 emissions, and the quantity of renewable energy produced.
Marjoleine van der Peet, Senior Portfolio Manager, and Narina Mnatsakanian, Director Responsible Investment and Impact Investment will be responsible for the daily management of the Kempen Global Impact Pool. Narina Mnatsakanian explained: ‘The Global Impact Pool enables us to effectively pool client’s capital together. We offer clients who want to make impact investments an efficient option for allocation across multiple asset classes. In addition, we are offering diversified investments across emerging and developed markets. The launch of the Global Impact Pool is a logical next step for Kempen, not just because its intention to invest in solutions to societal challenges, but also given the expertise in sustainable long-term investing Kempen has built up over the years.’
The Global Impact Pool offers access to impact investing to various types of professional investors in the Netherlands, Luxembourg, and the United Kingdom.
