Notes to Editors - About Impax Asset Management
Impax Asset Management is a leading investment firm, managing and advising on approximately £4.7bn* primarily for institutional clients through both listed and private equity strategies.
Impax's listed equity investments are based on a strong conviction that population dynamics, resource scarcity, inadequate infrastructure and environmental constraints will profoundly shape global markets, creating investment risks and opportunities. The Company 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.
The Company's private equity infrastructure funds follow an operationally focused, value-add strategy, investing in renewable power generation and related assets throughout Europe.
