Will returns be lower with impact investments.
Will I get lower returns on my investment compared to traditional investment funds?
Investors will get competitive returns on their investments compared to funds of similar risk profiles. For example, built environment investments will return at least the same as property trusts.
We believe knowing the imputs and ouputs and measuring their impacts is simply good business practice. Data helps our investments make informed decisions and because they are contributing positively are more likely to have a sustainable future.
Investment returns need to be assessed in the light of the risk taken to gain those returns. As the businesses being backed by Beckon have a direct connection to local communities, the profitability and capital required can be fairly accurately forecast. The nature of the businesses'returns is primarily income rather than capital growth. Beckon does not invest in businesses which are seeking to be the next unicorn, due to the risks associated with such businesses.
