We’re proud to invest in impact-driven organisations, projects and funds.
Business as a force for good
We allocate a portion of our capital for investment in impact-driven organisations, projects and funds that are expected to deliver both social and commercial returns - and that align to one of both of our objectives:
Help educate disadvantaged young people, at scale - preparing them for the workforce of the future
We do this by supporting organisations that target disadvantaged young people and either:
- Directly contribute to increasing the number of educated young people; or
- Provide technology/scale that will multiply impact to a large number of young people.
Help business to be a force for good
We support organisations that:
- Generate substantial leverage, enabling a greater proportion of society or businesses to contribute to being a force for good; or
- Have a ripple or catalytic effect, demonstrating a high degree of innovation that is expected to pave the way for other people or organisations to follow suit, and therefore have far-reaching impact in being a force for good.
We are willing to accept commercial returns from impact investments up to 20% less than the risk-adjusted return we would expect from an equivalent purely-commercial investment opportunity.
Please note: We work with an investment advisor, Australian Impact Investments. Due to resourcing and funding constraints, we do not accept unsolicited proposals for impact investments.
We're proud to invest in these impact-driven organisations and funds.
