Barclays Multi-Impact Growth Fund
Barclays Multi-Impact Growth Fund is blended by our experts to provide potentially strong returns as well as a positive impact on the environment and society.
The value of investments can fall as well as rise and you could get back less than you invest. If you’re not sure about investing, seek independent advice.
The Multi-Impact Growth Fund (MIGF) offers investors a simple, “one stop shop” to invest in leading impact funds and investments.
Rather than invest directly into individual companies, our experts do the hard work to find what they believe are the best specialist investment funds being run by other managers.
Our experienced in-house selection team choose funds that they believe are amongst the best in their class, based on both their potential for strong financial returns and when measured on key environmental, social and governance (EGS) outcomes. These funds are put together into a single ‘fund of fund’ that the Barclays team believe is rigorously selected and incorporates impact considerations while being managed according to Barclays’ best investment thinking.
The underlying funds hold different types of investments from around the world, including bonds and shares, so giving you plenty of diversification to help ride out any ups and downs in markets. Many of the companies in the MIGF focus on tackling some of today’s biggest social and environmental challenges. These companies cover more than the typical ESG themes, such as clean energy, but also look to address less explicit social issues, such as those connected to employment and education.
Remember that the value of investments can fall as well as rise and you may not get back what you invest. Whilst there is some evidence that the risk-adjusted returns of sustainable investment strategies can outperform traditional strategies, because this is a relatively young area we cannot draw any concrete conclusions about its expected returns.
Our experts do the hard work to find what they believe are the best investment funds being run by other managers that incorporate ESG and Impact considerations into their strategies, but also show promise in terms of financial performance.
