Launch of the TwinRiver Global Impact Fund
TORONTO, Oct. 28, 2021 /CNW/ - Today, TwinRiver Capital Group Inc. ("TwinRiver"), with its partner, Cidel Asset Management Inc. ("CAM"), announced the launch of the Cidel-TwinRiver Global Impact Fund (the "TwinRiver Global Impact Fund" or the "Fund").
The TwinRiver Global Impact Fund offers investors exposure to companies working intentionally and pro-actively on making a positive social and environmental contribution.
The Fund spans three priority impact themes: Energy and Environment, Health and Wellbeing, and Inclusive Economic Growth. It is comprised of a concentrated but diversified portfolio of 35-50 predominantly Small and Mid-Cap stocks in global, developed markets (North America, Europe and Asia).
Urgent and complex challenges such as climate change and a more equitable recovery from the pandemic, demand consideration of the impact of our choices on people and the planet. This creates growth opportunities for businesses with impact at their core and emphasizes the competitive advantage of managing operational, financial, and reputational risks. Concurrently, investors are increasingly seeking opportunities to better align their investment decisions with their values. The TwinRiver Global Impact Fund addresses these objectives.
"Impact investing has now moved into the financial mainstream, with more investors placing their money to work for the prosperity of current and future generations. These investors want to support businesses making a positive difference, and are looking for credible investment vehicles focused on both meaningful, measurable impact and strong financial returns. The time for this shift is now," says Eric Wetlaufer, Managing Partner of TwinRiver.
Eric is a seasoned global institutional investor, and has served as Chief Investment Officer at Putnam and Fidelity Investments and, more recently, as Senior Managing Director, Global Head of Public Market Investments at Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB). Eric partners with the portfolio management team at CAM in managing the TwinRiver Global Impact Fund.
