FUND MISSION

We believe in the power of sustainable brands to transform the world whilst delivering superior risk-adjusted returns. This isn’t just financially astute, it’s ethically imperative; our modus operandi.

A currently underinvested segment, ethically inclined consumer brands are expanding rapidly. Ethical consumer spending is not simply a trend; it’s a generational shift in purchasing habits driven by a technological revolution. Sustainability gives a brand authenticity, trust and a definable social purpose, all the while creating products or services perceived to be of superior quality.

This helps brands grow quickly, energise customers, and attract trade buyers. Sustainability also fuels efficiency, as well as staff motivation and retention. Supply chains become more transparent, waste is reduced and operational issues are readily identified. We are uniquely designed to be the investor of choice for sustainable business, ethically certified and aligned to the mission in every way.
