An excerpt from this podcast

“Impact investing strategies are always going to be long-duration strategies,” says portfolio manager Tim Crockford, who heads up Regnan’s equity impact investment team.

“That that has to be a consideration for anyone thinking about making a step into an impact investment vehicle.

“That means impact investors will run with portfolios that are vastly different to the global equity benchmarks that you might try and measure their performance against.

“Impact investing vehicles will tend to divert capital towards smaller and medium-sized companies as opposed to some of the world mega caps and blue chip stocks that typically dominate equity indices.

“These are strategies that will run with very high active shares, very high tracking errors (the difference in returns between a portfolio and a benchmark).

“But what we are finding more and more is that investors of all shapes and sizes like the long-term view that impact investors take.

“They like the fact they can understand the themes that will ultimately drive the creation and growth of their capital over the long-term holding periods that impact investors typically take.

More and more we see investors resonating with this longer-term view and seeing through the shorter term noise and volatility that markets typically throw up.

“It means that as an investor I’m going to have to think a little bit more laterally than previously, where I might just compare to benchmarks.

“But over the longer term, it’s likely to outperform because it is at the beginning of its life cycle.”
