Impact Cubed Allies with Impact Orange Partners to Accelerate Sustainable Capital Shift in the Netherlands
LONDON – [2023-09-06] – Impact Cubed, a leading provider of ESG impact data and portfolio solutions, is proud to announce its strategic partnership with Impact Orange Partners, a premier Impact consultant & sub-advisory boutique in the Netherlands. This collaboration is set to redefine the integration of impact data into the financial landscape of the regional investment community.
Impact Cubed’s mission is the acceleration of capital towards a more sustainable future. To achieve this, the implementation of best-in-class impact solutions and data is paramount. “Our collaboration with Impact Orange Partners is a testament to this commitment. By combining our industry-leading data, analytics and investment solutions with their unparalleled knowledge of the local market’s actual implementation challenges, we are poised to offer a holistic impact solution that is second to none,” said Libby Bernick, CEO.
The founders of Impact Orange Partners, Gerard Roelofs (Ex executive of NNIP and Van Lanschot Kempen amongst others), Jan Bertus Molenkamp (Ex executive and founder of Kempen’s fiduciary division), and Michel Iglesias del Sol (Ex Head of investment strategy at Van Lanschot Kempen and Willis Towers Watson), bring a wealth of experience and a deep understanding of the Dutch institutional investment environment. Their vision aligns seamlessly with Impact Cubed’s ethos, emphasising the importance of integrating Impact as an integral part of financial institutions.
“Impact investing is no longer a niche; it’s rapidly becoming mainstream. However, the prevailing approach to ESG has often been siloed and treated as a tick-box exercise. This fragmented approach undermines the true potential of ESG to drive sustainable value,” said Gerard Roelofs of Impact Orange Partners. “Our work with Impact Cubed is about changing this narrative. We aim to help institutions value impact across their entire value chain – from initial screening and due diligence to portfolio optimisation, all the way through to client and regulatory reporting. It’s not just about data or consulting; it’s an end-to-end, 3D solution that ensures impact is deliberately woven into the very fabric of investment strategies.”
This partnership underscores the shared belief of both firms: that the future of investing is about creating both financial and impact returns in a controlled fashion. The path to that future requires both innovative data solutions and expert implementation. By focusing on Belgium and the Netherlands, the collaboration aims to set a benchmark for ESG integration in the region.
