Investing for a more positive future
Your financial choices help to shape the world we live in. The money you invest has the potential to fund something better: for people, for communities, and for the planet.

We manage people’s money, and we also make investments of our own. This means we have the influence to drive changes on a bigger scale, to work towards a more positive future for everyone.

Our planet is constantly changing, driven by both environmental and societal revolution and evolution. The global impact of COVID-19 has demonstrated how quickly our own world can be reshaped. We’re on this journey together but the force behind real change is you.

Creating a brighter future, together

We all want to create a brighter future for the next generation. At M&G it is our mission to support our customers’ investment goals by aiming to generate sustainable returns over the long term. We also recognise that many of our customers are looking for their investments to offer more than just the potential for financial returns - the opportunity to make a difference to the planet too.

At M&G, we believe it’s the longer-term financial decisions, as well as the day-to-day choices we make, that have the potential to create a brighter future for us all. And while we offer a range of over 45 funds, each with their own individual aims and objectives, a number of our funds can help meet this need, and aim to achieve something better for the environment and society, one investment at a time.

Our funds

The M&G Positive Impact Fund invests in companies that aim to make a positive impact by addressing a range of societal and environmental issues the world is facing, while giving equal importance to healthy, long-term financial returns.

The M&G Sustainable Multi Asset Fund screens most of its potential holdings to help ensure its investments do no harm to society or the environment. This is known as Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) screening. A core, long-term portion of the fund is also invested to help make a positive impact on the planet and offer investors something more than just targeting financial returns?
