Impact investing means that your money is invested in companies that aim to effect real, positive change in the world in dynamic ways.
Whether helping to improve global healthcare provision, or developing innovative environmental solutions, your money is invested in companies that have the potential to improve people’s lives on a global scale, all while aiming to grow your financial returns over the long term.
Making the right choices
To help them achieve their objectives, our impact funds only invest in a relatively small number equities – shares in a company or business. This means that a fall in the value of a single holding may have a greater impact on the fund than if they held a larger number of equities, just as some of our other funds do.
To find out more about equity investing and how it compares to other asset classes such as bonds, property or cash, take a look at the M&G Guide to Equities to help you find out if they could be a good fit for you and your investment needs right now.

The value of a fund's assets will go down as well as up. This will cause the value of your investment to fall as well as rise and you may get back less than you originally invested.
