Lloyd’s Investment Platform launches Private Impact Fund for sustainability-focused assets

Lloyd’s, the leading marketplace for commercial, corporate and speciality risk solutions, has announced the launch of the Lloyd’s Private Impact Fund with the appointment of Schroders’ specialist private assets investment division, Schroders Capital, as its Portfolio Manager.

The newly-launched fund will invest globally across private equity, infrastructure, natural capital and real estate targeting the long-term themes of Climate Mitigation, Climate Adaptation, Circular Economy and Social Inclusion.

John Neal, Lloyd’s Chief Executive, said “Lloyd’s has committed to be the insurer of the transition to net zero, providing both the capital and the capability to enable industries and economies to build a sustainable future. The insurance industry has a critical role to play insuring the risks associated with transition, and providing the investment to accelerate progress.”

The new fund is the first to be launched on the Lloyd’s Investment Platform, which was set up to help investors in the Lloyd’s market generate attractive risk-adjusted returns on capital and access a broader range of investment opportunities, including private assets. This builds on the investment partnership announced last year with Schroders Solutions, part of the Schroders Group.

Eleanor Bucks, Chief Investment Officer at Lloyd’s, said “I am really proud to be announcing the launch and initial investment in the Lloyd’s Private Impact Fund. This is a great example of the impact that insurers can have in addressing climate change and reflects Lloyd’s convening role in leading the Sustainable Markets Initiative Insurance Task Force.”

The Lloyd’s market is supported by around £95bn of globally-invested assets and the Lloyd’s Investment Platform is designed to provide investors with access to opportunities, value for money, and operational efficiencies through investing collectively. Schroders manages £122bn of global assets for insurance companies.
