LET’S BUILD BACK BETTER – OUR COVID-19 MESSAGE
Grow your money…
There’s no need to sacrifice performance whilst making a positive impact through your investments.
Your pension, savings or investments could have 27 times more impact on your personal carbon footprint, compared to all other activities combined.*
With very little effort you can make a significant difference, moving from harming the planet with your money to sustaining it.
The Path exists to help you make this positive impact.
The graph above shows the comparative performance of an example impact investment portfolio against a non-impact industry benchmark (ARC) and the FTSE 100 Index. We have included a selection of underlying impact funds for illustration purposes. These are all funds that would be considered for inclusion in your investment portfolio with The Path, though they do not represent a complete portfolio.
It’s vital to remember that past performance is no guarantee of future performance, however, the graph does show that impact investment strategies can outperform more traditional investment portfolios, with the added benefit of doing good for the planet and its populations.

…and help the planet
The UN Sustainable Development Goals set out to achieve a better, more sustainable future for all. The 17 Goals are designed to address the challenges we face, including those related to the climate emergency, poverty, and inequality.
The Path is proud to align itself to these goals to the maximum degree possible.
join our movement for change
We started with the idea that pensions, savings, and investments could be used as a force to reverse climate change. We had no idea just how massive the impact and influence could be or how good the investment returns are. We are now convinced it is the future of savings and will be a catalyst for the evolution of capitalism that can help lead to a sustainable future.
It seems to us that disinvesting from damaging and destructive companies is the only moral and practical choice. But far more impactful beyond that is reinvesting that money into clean and sustainable companies that are making a positive impact.
Evidence already shows that companies that prioritise environmental, social and governance issues perform better. So, do you want to be with a traditional investment manager investing in assets that are potentially going to go down in value as old industries die due to consumer demand and legislative threat? Or is it a better idea to align your money with companies that have a future?

Why Westminster’s £3bn green investment package proves it’s down to people, not politics, to save our planet
The summer budget offered an opportunity for the government to show itself as a leader on the world stage by acting boldly and with genuine purpose in the fight against climate change. Yet instead of innovation, we’ve been gifted insulation.
Wishing Richard Curtis and his team at Make My Money Matter well with the launch of their campaign today. The public does not want to make a financial return from lung cancer and climate destruction. They find it immoral and repugnant. Yet most workplace pensions and personal pension fund managers persist in investing in tobacco and fossil fuel companies.
As always with investments, your capital is at risk. The value of your investment can go down as well as up, and you may get back less than you invest. This information should not be regarded as financial advice.
