While remaining independent from Partners Group, PG Impact Investments has been incubated and built-up with the support of Partners Group, leveraging their experience as a global private markets investment manager.
PG Impact Investments Foundation is the sole owner of PG Impact Investments AG and its subsidiaries. As such, the Foundation has full control over any change to the firm’s mission and its commitment to only raise funds with both financial and social/environmental benefits. All profits from the Foundation’s operating entities are transferred to the Foundation to support its philanthropic activities.
The Foundation’s mission is to support social initiatives and business ventures which aim to benefit underprivileged communities, but which would typically not meet the criteria to receive funding through institutional investors or investment funds.
The Foundation does not invite applications for grants. It sources its investment opportunities directly from the vast network of PG Impact Investments and its founders.
