Responsible Investment at Koda

Responsible investment is an approach to allocating capital that continues to grow in relevance and popularity. Investors across the globe are embracing investment opportunities that deliver attractive financial returns without harming people or the environment.

Responsible investment focusses on one or a combination of the following approaches:

  • Incorporating Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) analysis into your investment analysis
  • Screening out practices or industries not aligned to your values (e.g. tobacco)
  • Focusing on practices and industries that are aligned to your values (e.g. renewable energy)
  • Impact investments that seek to achieve both financial returns and measurable social &/or environmental outcomes (e.g. disability housing)

Why might it interest you?

Responsible investment has grown into a sophisticated investment and risk management approach that complements traditional risk and return analysis. It allows investors to align their capital to their values.
