Impact Mandate

Social and environmental impact first

Impact Mandate

  • Positive social and environmental impact
  • Investment impact in different asset classes
  • Clear reporting on the impact of your investments

A portfolio for which only companies who have a measurable, positive social and environmental impact are selected.

Mandate characteristics: 

The Impact Mandate invests exclusively in 'impact investments'. This means that only companies with a measurable, positive social and environmental impact are selected, while their sales should contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The portfolio is therefore suitable for investors for whom the environmental and social impacts are more important than financial returns. 

For its Impact Mandate, ABN AMRO uses the scores awarded to companies by ISS-oekom, based on the SDGs converted into measurable targets. Government-issued green bonds as well as other 'green' government projects are included in the mandate. Aside from equity and bonds, the mandate also invests in alternative investments, such as microloans and sustainable projects, rather than the traditional alternatives. 

Investors in the Impact Mandate receive an additional quarterly report quantifying the SDG themes. This report specifies the percentage of the portfolio that contributes to combating poverty, providing access to clean energy and/or measures to combat climate change, for example.

Your Portfolio Manager

Your assets are managed by a team of Portfolio Managers. They constantly monitor macroeconomic developments and market conditions and adjust portfolios as necessary. If you have a question about the markets or would like to know how your investments are doing, your Portfolio Manager will be happy to make time for you. That way, you don't have to deal with your investments on a daily basis, but are always well-informed and in control.

More information and conditions

What the mandate comprises

  • Equity
    We are continuing to build on ABN AMRO's sustainability process for selecting shares. In addition to this screening for ESG risk factors, the Bank has developed a second methodology together with ISS-oekom.  
    Only companies whose sales make a positive contribution to a better world have a chance of earning a spot in the portfolio.
  • Bonds 
    The Portfolio Managers select bonds from companies that have a positive impact, similar to the selection of shares. We invest in emerging markets through bonds issued by development banks active in such markets, and we favour government-issued green bonds to finance sustainability projects.
  • Alternatives 
    The Portfolio Managers look to investment funds specifically dedicated to social and environmental objectives when selecting alternative instruments.
  • Cash
    Finally, the Portfolio Managers may hold some of your assets in cash.
What is the investment approach?

The portfolios are actively managed according to the market conditions and in line with your risk profile. 
 
Our Portfolio Managers ensure the optimal allocation of your portfolio. They construct the portfolios based on the investment strategy defined by the Global Investment Committee. This strategy defines the preference for asset classes, regions, sectors and themes.
Risks

You should only invest with money that you have over, in addition to your buffer for unforeseen expenses. Investing can be interesting, but it also involves risks. You can lose (part of) your investment. It is good to be aware of this. Only invest in investment products that you understand. 

With Discretionary Portfolio Management, you do not make any investment choices yourself. Nevertheless, it is important that you are aware of the risks of investing. 

If you start with Discretionary Portfolio Management, it is important to first determine your risk profile. You leave the buying and selling to our experts, who will act within your risk profile.

Risk profiles

ABN AMRO uses six risk profiles for Discretionary Portfolio Management: from low risk (very defensive) to very high risk (very aggressive). Each risk profile has its own recommended allocation for the assets invested across shares, bonds, alternative investments and cash. 

Once you and your Private Banker have determined your risk profile, we can put together an appropriate investment portfolio. You will see immediately what this can mean for the return on your investments.
