Impact: Investing in mega trends

15 Jul, 2022 | Return|

“ESG is doing the thing right. Impact is doing the right thing.”

Impact investing is very much about having a clear intent to make a wider positive social and/or environmental impact, and being able to measure and evidence that impact. Whilst still a fairly nascent field, impact is gaining traction, however what do investors need to consider when investing in this way.

Square Mile’s Steve Kenny spoke with three industry experts at Responsible Pathway Live to dig a little deeper into impact investing. Drawing on the expertise of Caroline Cantor, Investment director at Federated Hermes, Mohsin Ahmad, Fund Manager at Regnan and Simon Bond, Executive director, responsible investment portfolio manager at Columbia Threadneedle Investments, they explored:

  • Differentiating impact from ESG.

  • Looking beyond the cycle to the long-term opportunities.

  • Identifying the impact of a security, and ensure it maintains integrity.

  • How investors can enable a just transition, from both a societal and environmental perspective.

You can listen to the panel discussion below, or through Spotify and Apple Music.


In summary: Caroline, Mohsin and Simon shared their key take-away from the session, take a look below.
