Written by Jen Gale on 25th Mar 2020

Evidence is emerging that positive impact funds have weathered the coronavirus market falls better than those whose performance is more closely linked to global stock market indices.

What’s special about impact?

In this Smug Money podcast, Jen Gale, founder of Sustainable-ish, interviews Rupert Welchman, from Union Bancaire Privée, co-manager of the bank’s impact investment strategy and discovers the history of impact investing, as well as why it matters now.



But remember, none of what you will hear constitutes financial advice and if you invest on the basis of this podcast, you do so at your own risk. Past performance is not a guide to future performance, and you could lose all your capital.
