About this fund

The Artemis Positive Future Fund’s objective is to grow capital over a five-year period by investing in companies which meet the managers’ criteria for positive environmental and/or social impact. The fund manager pursues this goal by identifying companies that create transformational rather than incremental change.

  • Focus on disruption: The manager seeks companies that drive systemic change. This leads her to invest at the intersection of disruptive innovation and outmoded business models.
  • Focus on dispersion: The fund aims to deliver excess returns by avoiding the homogeneity of mega-caps; instead, it focuses on mid-caps where idiosyncratic risk is a much larger factor in outcomes.
  • Focus on positive impact: The manager seeks to invest in instigators of transformational change, assessing a company’s positive impact by determining:
    • Intentionality is about purpose. Transformational change cannot happen without it. This means identifying companies that align their mission or objectives directly to positive environmental and/or social impact.
    • Materiality is about significance. This measure indicates the positive impact a particular company can have.
    • Additionality is about transformation. The positive environmental and/or social impact a company contributes beyond what would otherwise have occurred. This predominantly happens through disruptive innovation and not through incremental improvements to the status quo.
