Can impact investors really help change the world? Here’s evidence from Regnan

Regnan has just published its first annual impact report, showing how investors are helping make the world a better place

CAN you make the world a better place by carefully choosing where to invest?

Regnan’s equity impact investing team believes the answer is yes – and they lay out their case in their first annual impact report.

Regnan Global Equity Impact Solutions fund invests in businesses we believe are best placed to solve the environmental and social challenges of our time.

The goal?

Generate market-beating, long-term returns by identifying companies that are innovating and disrupting their way to solutions for the planet’s biggest problems.

The report shows investee companies in the fund are:
  • Training young doctors in Brazil, one of the most medically under-served countries in the world (Afya)
  • Producing low-carbon cement to transform the building industry (Hoffmann Green Cement)
  • Fighting homelessness in the UK (Home REIT)
  • Developing better batteries for electric vehicles that charge 6 times faster (Ilika)
  • Making fabric from tree fibres to replace cotton, using less water and emitting no net carbon (Lenzing)

And these are just the companies added to the portfolio in 2021.

The team’s proprietary taxonomy — built on the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals — has identified eight themes for making an impact, from improving life expectancy to the energy transformation.

Two themes stood out in 2021:
  • Health and well-being was thrust into the spotlight by the pandemic, which has lifted policy-maker emphasis on healthcare provision, well-being and prevention
  • A growing realisation that the world consumes resources at a higher rate than they can be replaced put the concept of the circular economy — which reuses and recycles production — into the global discourse

Investing in these enormous undertakings is made possible by Regnan’s “systems thinking” approach which seeks to generate positive, measurable social and environmental impact alongside a financial return.

“Our approach is to include impact in the investment decision, not to treat it as an afterthought,” says head of equity impact solutions Tim Crockford in the report.

“Investors can be confident that we assess impact every step of the way.”

As part of its approach, Regnan conducted 67 portfolio engagements in over the year, including 37 linked directly to environmental, social, governance or disclosure objectives.

Environmental engagements were dominated by decarbonisation, with several portfolio companies announcing net zero commitments. Diversity, equity and inclusion featured in the social engagements.

Details of these and other investments are in the Regnan Global Equity Impact Solutions Strategy’s inaugural Annual Impact Report 2021, which can be downloaded below.
