LONDON, 30-11-2015 — /EuropaWire/ — Impax Asset Management Group plc (“Impax” or the “Company”), the AIM quoted investment manager focused on environmental markets and related resource efficiency sectors, has been awarded Best Environmental Investment Manager for the second consecutive year and Best Specialist Fund Management Group at the Investment Week awards held in London last week. Both these awards attract strong industry competition and were judged by a panel of independent investment industry experts, who commented:
“Impax has developed a world class reputation in an asset class that is now on the verge of breaking out of a niche interest to a broader appeal.”
Ian Simm, Chief Executive of Impax, said:
“We are delighted to achieve this recognition. Impax has a successful track record of managing equity mandates since 1999. These awards are further recognition of our delivery of strong long term performance for our clients, and our contribution to the development of environmental and resource efficiency markets.”
“We are currently seeing unprecedented investor interest in environmental markets which continue their rapid expansion driven by intensifying urbanisation, water scarcity, food and energy security concerns and growing understanding of the investment risks and opportunities of climate change.”
