2. Measurable social and environmental impact

The ability to measure a company’s social or environmental impact is central to impact investing. Once we determine that a company meets the criteria for impact, we develop a set of key portfolio indicators (KPIs) to track that company’s progress towards our impact goals. Adapted from academic research, the KPI logic chain allows us to form a structured view, measuring impact for each company during different stages of its business life cycle, and tracking progress over time.

Developing strong relationships with our impact companies helps us understand their business models and determine which KPIs are most relevant. Depending on the business, availability of data and a firm’s awareness of its impact, our impact assessment will align with one or more categories within the logic chain. We document our work so that we can review and improve the process over time. Gaining access to these KPIs is an important area of engagement.

3. Invest in a new generation of companies with novel approaches to address global challenges

As the need for impact solutions grows, a new generation of companies are taking novel approaches and employing cutting-edge technology or innovative business models to address global challenges in distinctive often disruptive — and profitable ways.

We aim to identify companies that are making an appreciable difference in solving the world’s most challenging problems. To narrow our universe, we focus on three broad impact areas: life essentials, human empowerment, and the environment. We then target specific sub-themes where we have identified our theory of change. These themes align with many of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and are areas where we have clear views on investment potential.

Investment Objective

The investment objective of the Fund is to deliver long-term total returns as well as generate positive social and/or environmental changes in the world. The Fund will invest directly or indirectly primarily in global equities and investment grade rated global fixed income securities.

The investment policy of the Fund will be to, as a Feeder Fund, invest substantially all of its assets in the shares of the Underlying Funds (“Wellington Global Impact Fund” and “Wellington Global Impact Bond Fund”).

  • seek to achieve long-term total returns;
  • are prepared to accept, in normal market conditions, a high degree of volatility of NAV from time to time; and
  • are willing and able to accept that their principal will be at risk.

You should consult your financial advisers if in doubt about whether this Fund is suitable for you.

* The Managers have the absolute discretion to determine whether any distribution should be made. Any distribution is expected to result in an immediate reduction of the Fund’s net asset value (NAV). If the Investment Income of the Fund is insufficient to fund a distribution, the Managers may determine that such distributions should be paid from the capital of the Fund. Where distributions are paid out of capital, the NAV of the Fund will be reduced and this will be reflected in the Realisation Price of the Fund. Holders redeeming their Units may therefore receive an amount less than their initial investment. Such distributions may also result in reduced
future returns to Holders.
