On a mission to accelerate the allocation of capital to a sustainable future

We’re Impact Cubed

Founded two decades ago, Impact Cubed has evolved from its origins as a hedge fund, into a pioneer in the ESG investment space.

Impact Cubed addresses the gap in factual, granular ESG data and investment solutions by leveraging quantitative strategies and machine learning. This approach transforms ESG data into actionable insights, enabling sustainable investing that doesn't compromise on returns or assume undue risk.

At its core, Impact Cubed was born from a shared conviction among its founders that effective capital allocation can significantly impact global challenges. This belief, combined with their extensive experience in asset management and a keen understanding of the limitations in existing sustainable investment strategies, propelled the development of pioneering tools and methodologies. Impact Cubed's distinctive strategy focuses on delivering data-driven, practical solutions to align capital with a sustainable future, challenging the conventional wisdom that impact investing requires a trade-off between ethical considerations and financial performance.

Today, Impact Cubed stands at the forefront of the ESG landscape, having introduced the revolutionary 3D-ESG Integration approach. This model seamlessly integrates risk, return, and impact, enabling investors to construct and refine portfolios that achieve optimal balance among these dimensions. With strategic partnerships like the one with Euroclear in 2022, and innovations such as SmartESG, Impact Cubed is shaping the future of responsible investment. As regulations evolve and the market demands more sophisticated solutions, Impact Cubed remains committed to guiding investors through this changing landscape, ensuring that they do not have to choose between making an impact and securing returns.
