We are a global impact investment firm backed by Partners Group, one of the largest private markets investment managers in the world. PG Impact Investments was founded in 2015 with the vision that private investment, innovation and entrepreneurial talent can bring sustainable growth and provide solutions to the challenges facing our society. We serve an international clientele of professional investors who seek investment solutions that offer financial returns, while also helping to address pressing social or environmental challenges. Our origin dates back to 2006, when Partners Group established its employee-backed foundation PG Impact in the wake of the 2004 Asian Tsunami. Since then, Partners Group has conducted many impact investments through this foundation and, in 2015, decided to institutionalize its impact investing practice through the creation of PG Impact Investments.
While remaining independent from Partners Group, PG Impact Investments entities have full access to the global infrastructure, investment know-how and specialist resources of Partners Group. All profits from our business activities are transferred to our PG Impact Investments Foundation to support philanthropic activities.
Our investment approach includes two investment strategies: direct and integrated investments.
Direct investments: We invest in the growth of attractive social enterprises with a proven business model, high development potential and a measurable and scalable social and environmental impact. We are flexible in terms of investment size and invest through equity and debt structures. Value and impact creation is our priority and we work closely with management teams and corporate partners throughout the life of our investments to achieve this.
Integrated investments: We complement our direct investments with commitments to select impact investment managers. Through a flexible combination of these investment strategies, we can benefit from specialist sector and market know-how and build more diversified, global impact investment funds.
