Why impact investing?
While some wealth managers offer impact investing as a small part of a broader portfolio, Tribe solely invests in businesses working for the benefit of society and the planet.
Impact investing is often a way for investors to express their personal values through their investments: using business to solve social and/or environmental problems.

You have the means to make the change – by combining your financial aims, your values, and the progress you want to see in the world.

Some frequently asked questions
Impact investing focuses on investments that address major social and environmental challenges, whilst also aiming to generate a financial return. Impact investing goes beyond negative screening or ESG risk management and focuses on those companies that are creating a positive impact.
No. Every investment is assessed for its investment credentials, as well as its impact credentials via our “twin-lens” approach. Impact investing adds impact returns on top of financial returns. We benchmark ourselves against an industry benchmark – ARC PCI (Asset Risk Consultants Private Client Indices).
100% of Tribe’s investments are sustainable. We only run portfolios for positive, sustainable impact. While some wealth managers offer impact investing as a small part of a broader portfolio, we invest solely in businesses working for the benefit of society and the planet. Sustainability is at the core of everything we do, from our mission as a business, to our operations, and the offering to our clients.
ESG investing looks at the operations of a company and the potential environmental, social and governance risks associated with the way they operate. Impact investing also assesses this but looks beyond to the products/services to ensure they’re working to solve major global challenges, not contributing to them. A company can have a high ESG score but its products/services may be contributing harmfully to society or the environment.
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, such as poverty, inequality, climate change, the energy transition, peace and justice, to name a few. There are 17 interlinked SDGs (Global Goals).
We use the SDGs as a framework for understanding the values of our clients and to measure, and report on a portfolio’s impact performance. The SDGs are the “north star” of our investment process and help those who invest with us to identify the impact they wish to create in the world.
Tribe clients are a growing community of people who want to use their wealth to do more: to put it to work in a way that will help bring about prosperity for others, and for the planet. Tribe clients are individuals, families, family offices, charities and corporates.

Being part of Tribe means you’ll be taking an active and informed role in the shift to a sustainable economy, investing in the right places, and engaged in a broad movement for good. You’ll receive monthly market and impact reviews, annual SDG performance reports and regular opinion and thought leadership on investment and impact topics.

We’re unique in that we have a twin-lens investment process where we assess for both impact rationale alongside financial rationale. We don’t just employ negative screens, rather, every fund, single security and asset allocation decision is made through our investment and our impact lens. The investment process is set up so that each team (investment and impact) has a right of veto over the other. This means an investment can be rejected if it fails to meet our stringent impact criteria and vice versa (and this does happen).
In a climate and biodiversity crisis it’s vital that my wealth is invested to tackle the crisis and not make it worse. Tribe understands how important these issues are to clients and provide a wealth management service you can be confident is leading the way with impact.Julia davies, client
