NEW YORK and LONDON, March 9, 2021 /3BL Media/ - Sustainable Insight Capital Management (SICM) and Impact Cubed Investments are pleased to announce the expansion of their suite of sustainable strategies with the addition of a US High-Impact Equity portfolio. The new strategy leverages the two firms’ unique alpha capabilities and sustainable expertise to meet investor demand for a US public equity portfolio with a high ESG impact.

Launched in 2019, the partnership between SICM and Impact Cubed rests on the idea that high quality, authentic sustainable investing should be based on the same level of systematic data-driven research and quality portfolio construction common in other areas of the institutional investment management industry.

Each of the strategies combine rigorous portfolio construction with a transparent approach to understanding and measuring key metrics to support its sustainability choices and performance. The disclosure employs the Impact Cubed portfolio model, a proprietary quantitative impact measurement and optimization tool that provides a framework to align portfolios with the UN SDGs.

Kevin Parker, Managing Partner of SICM, stated that “Our partnership with Impact Cubed has proven extremely successful in offering clients a rare opportunity to achieve impact in the global public markets. We have long identified the US markets as an underserved area for proven ESG products. We look forward to working with Larry and his team to continue offering innovative approaches to ESG investing.”

“The last 18 months have demonstrated the value of ESG across the investment spectrum,” said Larry Abele, CIO of Impact Cubed. “As early advocates and practitioners of sustainable quantitative investing, we are proud of our work in advancing measurable impact and look forward to continuing to expand the field of impact offerings.”
