Founded in 1998, Impax Asset Management is a specialist asset manager focused on investing in the transition to a more sustainable economy.
Impax believes that:

  • 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.

Impax invests in companies and assets that are well positioned to benefit from the shift to a more sustainable economy. Across investment portfolios, Impax seeks to invest in higher quality companies with strong business models that demonstrate sound management of risk. Impax offers a well-rounded suite of investment solutions to global investors, spanning multiple asset classes seeking superior risk-adjusted returns over the medium to long-term.

Impax manages funds and accounts in four areas: actively managed long-only equity, fixed income, infrastructure (new energy) and smart beta.
