Impact Asset Management GmbH (formerly known as C-QUADRAT Asset Management GmbH) is a leading independent asset management company in the German speaking region, which is specialized in asset allocation, analysis and management of absolute return and sustainable investments.
Impact Asset Management is amongst the first signatories of the UN PRI in Austria. In 2006, the UN introduced six "Principles for Responsible Investment" (UN PRI). By signing these, investors and asset managers agree to commit themselves to environmental, social and governance issues in their investment activities.
The investment policy pursues the mission of contributing to the UN Sustainable Development Goals through an investment strategy in ESG screened assets, impact investments via microfinance and a responsible investment approach. Our investment objective is to generate social, environmental and financial return as a triple bottom line asset manager. Cooperations complement our investment processes and foster knowledge sharing on an international level.
The aim of all products is continuous capital growth but with a focus on security and risk minimisation. In rising markets the focus is on performance optimisation. In falling markets the focus is on active risk management in order to protect the consigned assets from heavy losses.
The business focus is on institutional clients and high net worth individuals. Our goal is to increase our customer base in close collaboration with banks, online businesses and distributors and to expand into new markets in the coming years.
