London-based emerging and frontier market sustainable investment boutique Alquity Investment Management has received the approval of French regulator AMF for the marketing of its Sicav in France on 22 December 2017.
Alquity Sicav includes the following sub-funds: Alquity Africa, Alquity Latin America, Alquity Asia, Alquity Indian Subcontinent and Alquity Future World.
Alquity invests in emerging and frontier markets since 2009 while donating a proportion of its revenues – up to 25% with a minimum cap of 10% – towards charitable projects in regions where it invests. As of 10 January 2018, the London-based manager claimed to have transformed over 47,000 lives through the projects it supports.
Alquity’s director Suresh Mistry caught up with InvestmentEurope last May to discuss the firm’s ESG and impact investing policies.
