What it does
The company's investments are based on the strong conviction that population dynamics, resource scarcity, inadequate infrastructure and environmental constraints will profoundly shape global markets, creating investment risks and opportunities.
Impax expects that these trends, reflecting the transition towards a more sustainable global economy, will drive earnings growth for well-positioned companies.
How it's doing
Impax's assets under management (AUM) surged to a new high in the final quarter of 2020.
AUM rose by 24.8% during the final three months of 2020 to £25.2bn.
"Despite these difficult times, I am pleased to report that Impax has again demonstrated its resilience and delivered another quarter of strong growth,” said Ian Simm, the chief executive of the AIM-listed specialist investor.

“After a year dominated by the effects of COVID-19, there are strong reasons to believe that the business opportunities arising from the transition to a more sustainable global economy will be increasingly attractive to companies and the investors that back them. Against this backdrop, Impax is well placed to extend its well-established franchise as a specialist investment manager,” he added.
