About

The MII Portal was written to explain the underlying principles and methodology for an approach to investment analysis characterized as Mainstream Impact Investment (MII).

MII has a distinct strategy to create wealth by investing in well governed, profitable businesses striving to reduce the environmental impact of creating value for society. These are businesses operating in the mainstream markets that succeed because they’re fundamentally structured to decouple economic growth from environmental destruction and not in-spite of this. Importantly, these are businesses capitalising on the opportunities that responding to global challenges present and operate in high growth markets prevalent across all sectors of the economy.  

The objectives of MII from an analysts perspective are no different to any other well managed fund. The aim is to create wealth for investors at competitive rates, albeit by integrating rigorous financial analysis with sustainability research.  

The MII approach is just good business sense because it takes into account a broader range of factors that reinforce investment decisions. Whatever your view, it is difficult to contest the assertion that “the transition to a resilient economy must be led by well governed businesses striving to reduce the environmental impact of creating value for society“.  You’re either part of the problem or part of the solution, but MII is a mandate for analysts and investors alike to align their financial portfolios with these values.
