Impact-Cubed Investments

Impact-Cubed Investments (formerly Auriel Investors)  is an asset manager specialising in sustainable investing. Our strategies are designed to enhance returns while promoting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for 2030. We are experts in measuring and managing the social and environmental externalities of publicly listed equities. Our mission is to protect and grow investor’s assets in a responsible manner. High impact and competitive performance are possible by focusing on both exclusions and inclusions as ‘paired-trades’ designed to create impact and generate returns. Impact-Cubed Investments applies its impact models to SMAs and in the form of an impact overlay to existing strategies – enhancing the sustainability characteristics of the portfolio while preserving the existing sources of alpha, or the existing relationships of asset owner and asset manager. Shifting the cost of capital is a powerful lever for changing the world. By taking capital from ‘problem’ companies (going short or underweight) and giving the capital to ‘solution’ companies (going long or overweight), we are helping to shift the cost of capital in the direction of positive change. This is the invisible hand of capitalism at work.
