C-QUADRAT Asset Management GmbH becomes Impact Asset Management GmbH

C-QUADRAT Asset Management GmbH announces that the company is now operating under the new name Impact Asset Management GmbH. In addition to the new name, a comprehensive rebranding will also take place. IAM - Impact Asset Management GmbH thus underlines its position in the C-QUADRAT Group as the leading provider of sustainable products.

The new brand positioning is intended in particular to reflect the focus on the sustainable and impact-oriented alignment of the company and the product portfolio. Günther Kastner, Managing Partner and CIO of Impact Asset Management GmbH: "With our new brand identity, we will continue our sustainable growth strategy even more dynamically. Sustainability has been part of our DNA for many years. We will now communicate this proactively with the new brand IAM - Impact Asset Management".

Impact Asset Management GmbH has a long-standing and very successful track record in the field of impact investing and management of sustainable products. For example, the first microfinance funds were launched in 2006. Today, Impact Asset Management GmbH is one of Europe's leading providers in microfinance. In the area of ESG-compliant products, the dynamic allocation fund C-QUADRAT GreenStars ESG has received numerous awards in recent years - in addition to top ratings from Morningstar, the management team was also named Best Fund Manager 2020 in the Mixed Assets Aggressive EUR category by Citywire.

Impact Asset Management GmbH is one of the first signatories of the UN PRI in Austria. The six "Principles for Responsible Investment" (UN PRI) introduced by the UN in 2006 are principles for responsible investing. With them, investors and asset managers commit to complying with environmental, social and governance criteria (ESG guidelines) relevant to the financial market in their investment activities. At product level, all sustainability and impact product strategies are regularly reviewed and evaluated by external institutions (Forum Nachhaltiger Geldanlagen (FNG), CGAP, LuxFlag).
