Insight’s Responsible Horizons Euro Impact Bond strategy aims to be an important building block for investors who want to achieve a positive environmental and social impact alongside financial returns.

Features

Focus on meaningful impact: Fixed income investors have a unique opportunity to achieve impact in a transparent way – primarily due to the huge growth in the ‘use-of-proceeds’ bond market where investors can fund specific projects with environmental and social impacts. The strategy aims to focus on this opportunity, looking through both an environmental and social lens, by investing predominantly in use-of-proceeds impact bonds. It will also seek to broaden the impact achieved by allocating to impact issuers which are companies with a high level of alignment to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Longer-term focus: By adopting an ‘enhanced buy and maintain’ approach we seek to align the strategy with the longer-term time horizon over which impact factors typically play out. This also encourages a partnership approach with issuers which leads to more impactful outcomes.

Bias towards corporate issuers: Through a corporate focus we aim to maximise the potential return achievable, meaning we can target a higher level of return while also seeking a positive impact.

Important information

The value of investments and any income from them will fluctuate and is not guaranteed (this may be partly due to exchange rate fluctuations). Investors may not get back the full amount invested. Past performance is not a guide to future performance.

Investments in bonds are affected by interest rates and inflation. For a full list of applicable risks, and before investing, investors should refer to the underlying offering documents.
