Our Responsible Investment Fund is the first of its kind in Israel. We invest in public equity with positive impact to create squared value for our clients. Responsible Investments are impact investments which integrate standard financial evaluation with Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) analysis.
This kind of investment creates squared value: research indicates that Responsible Investment generate higher financial returns as well as enabling investors to correlate investments with values. More than 1,700 financial institutions worldwide, including the likes of BlackRock, Calpers and JPMorgan, have already internalized this insight and are embedding ESG in some of their investment strategies. Moreover, this realization creates an enhancing effect, because it generates more demand for responsible equity and may increase possibilities for better returns. What sets us apart from the rest is our unique methodology that puts impact first.
