Investment Managers

Connect your firm with the highest impact climate philanthropy.

Investors care about climate change. But funds with a genuine commitment to sustainability often get lost in the crowd. And fund managers have limited options for investments that directly regenerate the planet – and thereby differentiate their products.

Meanwhile, philanthropy has a critical role to play in tackling climate change. But less than 2% of global philanthropic giving goes to climate mitigation efforts.


The Global Returns Portfolio is a curated selection of best-in-class climate charities.

Our ‘fund management’ approach to philanthropy means we embrace diversification, rigorous selection research and regular performance reporting. Our team of world-class climate scientists oversees the Portfolio’s selection and assessment.

Fund managers donate to our Portfolio as a corporate social responsibility (CSR) action or from the management fee of a specific product. The Global Returns Project (UK charity no. 1186683) runs the Portfolio. We charge no fees to participating fund managers and take no deductions from donations to the Portfolio.

Due diligence [on the Global Returns Project] was smooth because what we do, fund management, involves a similar set of processes to how the Global Returns Portfolio has been constructed.

James Peel

Portfolio Manager, Titan Asset Management

Underpinning our approach is our principle that we would rather be part of a fundamental solution to the climate crisis than just offset our ongoing activity […] We are interested in constructing an authentic, tailored and innovative solution to the problem rather than just following the herd or ticking a box.

We believe the Global Returns Project are aiming to fulfil a crucial gap in addressing climate change; which is centred around bringing non-market solutions and market participants together.
