Sonen Capital directs capital to investment opportunities that help meet large-scale social and environmental challenges.
Our impact investing strategies reflect our conviction that generating financial returns and creating social and environmental impact are not only compatible, but also mutually reinforcing objectives. Integrating social and environmental performance indicators into investment decision-making helps reduce related risks, and creates further opportunity for investors to align their resources with their values. Sonen considers social and environmental performance data in our investment decision-making process; participates in active shareholder engagement; and monitors and reports on the impact of its investments.
Impact investments are investments made with the intention of realizing measureable positive social and environmental benefits alongside competitive financial returns.
Just as our everyday decisions reflect our own personal value systems, so too do our financial decisions. Investing can be an expression of values, and can reflect an effort to align financial resources with those values. Collectively, we believe these expressions can influence corporate behavior, induce material corporate policy changes that result in large-scale positive social or environmental outcomes, and harness the positive power of enterprise to target specific environmental and social needs.
We are pleased to share with you our 2015 Annual Impact Report. This report is the first of its kind report that directly links investment strategies to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Sonen’s globally focused public equity, fixed income and real assets portfolios aim to deliver competitive financial returns while supporting several specific SDGs including climate change, clean energy, water and sanitation, sustainable cities, sustainable timber and green real estate.Download
