We are responsible citizens
Our experience of impact investing dates back to 2006, when our employee foundation, PG Impact (Verein), was established and incorporated, in the wake of the 2004 Asian Tsunami. Since then, we have supported 52 social enterprises through PG Impact. In 2015, we decided to institutionalize our impact investing practice and supported the launch of PG Impact Investments, a global impact investment firm focused on finding investment solutions to address the world's most pressing social challenges.
PG Impact (Verein) supports entrepreneurial non-profit organizations and social enterprises that create positive, high-impact and measurable social and environmental benefits. Founded in 2006, it is run entirely by Partners Group employees who contribute their time and expertise to identifying, evaluating and investing in high-impact projects benefitting disadvantaged populations and the environment.
PG Impact Investments is a private sector, mission-driven, professional investment firm that specializes in investment solutions that both deliver financial returns and create a positive social and/or environmental impact. Its investment strategies are designed for clients who seek market-rate returns while also wanting to help address pressing social or environmental needs.
All profits from the business activities of PG Impact Investments are transferred to PG Impact Investments Foundation. This Foundation has at the heart of its mission the ambition to support social initiatives and business ventures which aim to benefit underprivileged communities, but which would typically not meet the criteria to receive funding through commercial investors or investment funds.
PG Impact Investments entities are backed by Partners Group and its employees, and benefit from the global infrastructure, investment know-how and specialist resources of one of the world's leading private markets investment managers.
