Making a Collective Change for a Resilient Society

We invest our clients’ assets with a clear purpose in mind: to generate compelling returns while considering the challenges of our time. Addenda Capital offers sustainable investing strategies that aim to foster positive social and environmental changes and open the path to a cleaner future. Sustainable investing is the right thing to do, right now.


Social Value and Financial Value do not Have to be Mutually Exclusive

Addenda Capital defines impact investing as an investment approach that seeks to create both compelling financial returns and positive social and/or environmental impact that can be adequately measured, tracked and reported. We undertake our own internal analysis of impact, but favor opportunities whose impact framework is recognized by a third-party authority.

Five Broad Themes

The positive impact investment opportunities may span across many themes, structures and asset classes. We seek investment opportunities in bonds and commercial mortgages that focus mainly on five themes:

  • Climate Change
  • Health and Wellness
  • Education
  • Community Development
  • Water

Established in December 2017, the Addenda Impact Fixed Income Fund seeks income and long-term capital growth.

Ignoring a Problem Doesn’t Make it go Away

We see environmental and social challenges as opportunities to invest and help create a better tomorrow. The Addenda Climate Transition approach builds investment portfolios that work closely with companies that share our interest in making a collective change – that is, a resilient net-zero emissions society by 2050.

Our Solution

An inclusive process, which goes beyond divestment, includes:

  • Identifying companies for support of transition
  • Actively managing a concentrated portfolio with the objective of reducing its carbon footprint
  • Using inclusion criteria that strengthen as society progresses throughout the transition period
  • Engaging with portfolio companies to encourage their improvement and commitment achievement of climate performance
  • Advocating for conditions required for the transition with policymakers and regulators

Our Climate Transition approach, consisting of different phases, would apply to strengthen the companies’ commitments to continuously improve their carbon emissions, while respecting sustainable development criteria and financial requirements. Click here for more information

Inspired by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

One of the first of its kind in Canada. In addition to helping meet the needs of investors, the Fund aims to support Sustainable Development Goals adopted by the 193 U.N. member states to improve the world by 2030.  To achieve this, it aims to address issues where Canada can make progress on SDGs, including housing, more sustainable cities and communities, reduced inequalities, good health and well-being, and quality education.

The Eco-Social Fund seeks to invest in focus areas under five main themes:

  • Affordable housing
  • Green buildings
  • Underrepresented groups
  • Cultural, non-profit and community facilities
  • Health and education

The Fund seeks to generate compelling returns by focusing on capital preservation with a “limited risk” approach.
