Osmosis launched in 2009 as a dedicated environmental investment manager and remains majority owned by its employees and directors. The company is headquartered in London with a growing presence in North America. The firm’s philosophy is that for sustainable investment to gain mainstream adoption, positive environmental impact should not come at the cost of portfolio performance.
Its team of quantitative environmental analysts and portfolio managers are singularly focused on delivering three levels of impact. Better risk-adjusted returns, measurable environmental reductions and an active engagement programme to promote better corporate environmental disclosure.
Osmosis has been, and remains at, the forefront of applying objective environmental data to traditional portfolio theory and construction. The firm’s successful range of Resource Efficient investment portfolios has attracted a global client roster, including government pension funds, insurance companies, foundations, endowments, family offices and banks.
