ALQUITY EXPANDS INTERNATIONAL REACH THROUGH STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP WITH HAVEN GREEN
LONDON, May 26, 2022 – Alquity, the leading responsible investment manager, and Haven Green Capital Partners, the world’s first multi boutique focused solely on managers with sustainability and impact at the heart of their investment process, have today announced a strategic partnership.
The agreement will give investors wider access to Alquity’s world class ESG and impact funds through Haven Green, with a particular focus on institutional investors and with geographical coverage across the Nordics, Germany, Italy, Spain, Austria and Latin America. In the Benelux and UK, the Haven Green and Alquity teams will work alongside each other.
“There is real mission alignment between Alquity and Haven Green with our combined focus on impact, sustainability and ESG,” said Brad Crombie, CEO, Alquity. “The team at Haven Green has a great track record of connecting conscientious stewards of capital with the world’s best and most positive impactful sustainable investment solutions – which is where we come in.”
Alquity is the bridge between listed equities and impact through its pioneering 3-D investment model which fuses financial performance, high-quality portfolio ESG and catalytic capital for local impact. The agreement will enable Haven Green to introduce Alquity’s Global Impact Fund, Future World Global Emerging Markets Fund, its Asia Fund, as well as its Indian Subcontinent Fund, which was in the top-ten performing funds globally of 2021.
Paul Price, Chief Executive of Haven Green Capital Partners, said: “We are excited to engage with the team at Alquity, with its commitment to address the global challenges head on in their portfolio process which align with our own beliefs in this space. We are also very proud to work with a firm committed to dedicating revenues directly to impactful causes.”
Paul Price, the former Global Head of Distribution at Morgan Stanley, launched Haven Green specifically to address demand for genuine high quality ESG and impact managers.
This strategic partnership follows the announcement earlier in May that Alquity and Spouting Rock Asset Management were launching a new platform to accelerate the adoption of ESG investing in the US.
“The Haven Green strategic partnership is another key building block in our mission to re-allocate capital towards a fairer world, and transform millions of lives,” said Paul Robinson, Alquity Founder and Chair.
Last year, the London-based firm formed a partnership with East Capital Group, as well as completing its capital raise with backing from the founders of Investible, Australia’s leading seed stage investor, and from asset management pioneer Martin Gilbert.
In addition, Alquity’s Transforming Lives programme, in which it injects 10% of its fee revenues, has impacted more than 65,000 people by granting more than $2.4m in the regions where the company invests. This social investment also provides a feedback loop back into the investment teams – a mechanism which differentiates its approach.
