Founded in 1998, Impax Asset Management has pioneered investment in the transition to a more sustainable global economy and today is one of the largest investment managers dedicated to this area.
Impax has ca. 190 staff across six offices in the United Kingdom, the United States, Ireland and Hong Kong (as at 31 March 2021).
In April 2021, Fidante Partners became distribution partner for Impax in Australia and New Zealand.
Impax Asset Management Limited and Impax Asset Management (AIFM) Limited (collectively “Impax”) are wholly owned subsidiaries of Impax Asset Management Group plc. Impax is exempt from the requirement to hold an Australian financial services licence by operation of ASIC Class Order 03/1099: UK FCA regulated financial service providers, as modified by ASIC Corporations (Repeal and Transitional) Instrument 2016/396. Impax is authorised and regulated in the UK by the Financial Conduct Authority of the UK under UK laws, which differ from Australian laws.
Impax believes 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 global economy. They seek higher quality companies with strong business models and governance that demonstrate sound management of risk.
