Impact investing starts with the intention to generate a measurable, beneficial social or environmental impact alongside a financial return. Impact investments provide capital to address social and/or environmental issues. The Fiera Global Impact strategy offers intentional and measurable alignment with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that uses the Impact Management Project (IMP) guidance to construct the portfolio. We have adopted the IMP’s guidance so that it can be used to quantify a company’s Impact in the form of the Fiera Impact Score (FIS). We use the FIS to rate each investment opportunity in order to determine its suitability in the Global Impact strategy.
The team is also supported by our Infrastructure Debt and US Municipal Bond teams as well as the Global Impact Committee who approve all investments that are deemed impactful.
