We offer continuous learning and connection opportunities through regular community events, peer-to-peer sharing and workshops.

“We believe we can change the world by investing in companies that serve the wellbeing of people and planet”

“Preserving the Earth’s ecosystems is fundamental for food security, climate change mitigation, poverty reduction and social stability”

Invest in a sub-fund

In 2017 we launched our first sub-fund: the Pymwymic Healthy Ecosystems Impact Fund. We believe healthy ecosystems are the starting point of life. Preserving the Earth’s ecosystems is fundamental for food security, climate change mitigation, poverty reduction and social stability, as well as overall sustainable development. The Healthy Ecosystems Impact Fund invests in innovative impact companies that seek to conserve and restore our ecosystems while providing an attractive financial return. We focus on six sectors: (1) agriculture & food systems, (2) aquaculture, (3) forestry, (4) water & sanitation, (5) eco-tourism and (6) circular / waste management.

Institutional investors are welcome to co-invest through our sub-fund. Richard Bruens, Van Lanschot Kempen: “Investing in the Pymwymic Healthy Ecosystems Impact Fund gives us the opportunity to further develop our knowledge and expertise of impact investing”

“Catalysing the movement of impact investing is part of our responsibility to the greater impact field”

Support our movement

As a movement builder, we welcome philanthropists to support our efforts to catalyse the movement of impact investing through financial or in-kind contributions. As our community has over twenty years of experience, there is a wealth of information we can harvest and share with the wider impact space. In our past efforts, we have welcomed around 600 new wealth holders into impact investing. Past grants have realised a catalysation effect of 24 times: € 1 million in grant funding supported € 24 million of capital invested for impact.

We build the impact field by:
•  Creating awareness with families and foundations
•  Moving from awareness to action
•  Facilitating the transition into impact investing
•  Offering continuous learning about impact investing
•  Giving back learnings to the field
