In IPE’s “Special Report: Impact Investing”, Susanna Rust recognises WHEB Asset Management as one of the ‘original’ impact investment firms and highlights WHEB’s impact calculator from last year as being one of the first of its kind.  Seb Beloe, WHEB’s Head of Research, is also noted for questioning whether the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals are truly suitable as an investment framework in a blog two years ago. This debate has since become increasingly relevant as so many new products are being launched making claims to incorporate the SDGs.

Financial adviser and Board Director of UKSIF, Tanya Pein and Ed Gillespie, co-founder of creative change agency Futerra, discuss “how to make money and do good” in New Model Adviser’s latest podcast on sustainable investment. The FP WHEB Sustainability Fund is noted in the conversation as an example of a fund that can achieve investment returns whilst helping to solve sustainability challenges.

Helping create a more sustainable society where future generations can prosper and thrive for centuries to come is now a driving factor for many investors. The WHEB Sustainability Fund and our Impact Calculator are mentioned in this article by Julia Dreblow, writing for FT Adviser, which highlights funds active in this area and how investments can have a positive impact.

Historically MoneyWeek has been quite cynical about ‘ethical investing’, but the publication has a rather more positive view of ‘sustainable investing’.  The FP WHEB Sustainability Fund is highlighted in this recent cover story, which considers how sustainable investing can lead to better returns and lower risk.

The UN’s Sustainable Development Goals have quickly become a popular tool for investors to report positive impact.  John Fleetwood, founder of 3D Investing, argues that there is a risk this framework could become mis-used if not used correctly, but highlight’s WHEB’s impact report as a leading example of good practice.
