Golding Capital Partners is to launch its first institutional impact fund of funds.
The Golding Impact 2021 is a private equity impact strategy based on ESG targets focusing on companies in Europe, North America and emerging markets in the areas of green solutions, sustainable agricultural technology and financial services. Golding plans to raise €300m for the fund which has initially classified the fund under Article 8+ of the SDFR and will initially target 15 investment funds.
“Impact investing is not just the future; it already offers great opportunities for institutional investors today. Our investment decisions can bring about real, sustainable change in a global transformation process, and at the same time add a huge amount of value and so generate reasonable returns. The biggest challenge in fact is to gain access to the best target fund managers and to ensure adequate diversification at the same time. We believe that on the basis of our long track record in impact investing and with the support of our investors we can make a key contribution to achieving the UN development goals”, said Dr Andreas Nilsson, Managing Director and Head of Impact at Golding.
