Impact investing – social, environmental and financial returns in one

More and more investors around the world are paying attention to sustainability aspects when it comes to investing. For many, it is no longer enough to simply avoid alcohol and tobacco companies, arms manufacturers or companies with particularly environmentally damaging production processes. The solution is called impact investing.

With this so-called impact-oriented investing, investors can support companies that have made it their goal to solve social and ecological problems - and contrary to persistent prejudices, investors do not have to compromise on returns. In 2015, the UN set 17 global sustainable development goals to be achieved by 2030. With the MSCI World IMI Select Sustainable Impact Top 20 Index, investors participate in the performance of companies that generate a significant share of their sales in areas that contribute to achieving the UN sustainability goals.
