Notes to Editors - About Impax Asset Management

 

Impax Asset Management is a leading investment firm, managing or advising on approximately £5.7bn1 primarily for institutional clients through both listed and private equity strategies.

 

The Company's investments are based on the strong conviction that population dynamics, resource scarcity, inadequate infrastructure and environmental constraints will profoundly shape global markets, creating investment risks and opportunities.  Impax expects that these trends, reflecting the transition towards a more sustainable global economy, will drive earnings growth for well-positioned companies.  Impax's proprietary investment framework identifies and calibrates the rising risks and expanding opportunities from this transition, and guides the search for investments that will deliver long term outperformance.
