Founded in 1998 by Ian Simm, Impax Asset Management has pioneered investment in the transition to a more sustainable economy and today is one of the largest investment managers dedicated to this area.
We believe capital markets will be shaped profoundly by global sustainability challenges, particularly climate change, environmental pollution, natural resource constraints, demographic and human capital issues such as diversity, inclusion and gender equity.
These trends will drive growth for well-positioned companies and create risks for those unable or unwilling to adapt.
Fundamental analysis which incorporates long-term risks, including environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors, enhances investment decisions.
We invest in companies and assets that are well positioned to benefit from the shift to a more sustainable economy. We seek higher quality companies, with strong business models and governance, that demonstrate sound management of risk whilst being able to adapt intelligently to changing conditions.
