Impax is a leading investment manager dedicated to investing in the opportunities created by the scarcity of natural resources and the growing demand for cleaner, more efficient products and services. Investors and pension funds are waking up to the huge long term growth potential offered by investing in global resource efficiency stocks, and the risks inherent in their existing portfolios. Growing populations and increasing consumption are creating the perfect storm.
Impax manages approximately 2£.4 billion for institutional and high net worth investors globally, and is committed to providing strong long-term risk-adjusted returns. Impax's listed equity funds seek out mis-priced companies that are set to benefit from the long-term trends of changing demographics, urbanisation, rising consumption, and the resultant increases in resource scarcity. Investment is focused on a small number of deeply researched global equity strategies across alternative energy, energy efficiency, water, waste, food and agriculture related markets. Impax's private equity infrastructure funds follow an operationally focused, value-add strategy, investing in renewable power generation and related assets throughout Europe. Impax is a thought leader in defining the markets in which it invests, for example through a partnership with FTSE to develop and manage the classification system underpinning the FTSE Environmental Markets Index Series.
