Benefits of the Connected Multi Impact Fund

Approach to impact

Connected believes that for an investment to be considered “impact”, it should generate a financial return alongside a positive, intentional and measurable social and environmental impact. Our impact assessment is embedded throughout the investment decision making chain together with more traditional investment approaches. Our impact measurement framework is based on the Impact Management Project’s (IMP) five dimensions of impact:

What

is the outcome that the investment is contributing to?

Who

are the stakeholders that the investment is creating the outcome for?

How much

of the outcome is produced, how many stakeholders are affected, how for how long?

Contribution

to the outcome by the underlying investment.

Risk

that the outcome is different than expected.

We provide access to sources of investment return that have previously been untapped by pension schemes
