Related Topics

Atlas Responsible Investors (Atlas), a French independent investment management firm, has launched a UCITS version of its Long/Short impact equity strategy.

Atlas has been running this strategy for three years for family offices; under a UCITS format, the fund will give a wider access to this unique fusion of authentic responsible investing and traditional equity long/short virtues. Both sustainability and absolute returns are the very core of one of the first SFDR9 absolute returns strategies.
Atlas was established in 2019 by Quentin Dumortier, with a mission to align capital with purpose. With the guidance of its Chief Impact Officer, Marie de Muizon, Atlas aspires to generate positive, measurable social and environmental impact alongside absolute financial returns. As a testament to the fund’s commitment to meeting rigorous social and environmental standards, Atlas is the first B Corp certified hedge-fund management firm.
Atlas’ investment process begins with in-depth screening of companies pioneering sustainability, and whose activity or business practices contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. This initial investment universe is also reviewed by independent panels of sustainability experts. Atlas then leverages its investment team’s experience and expertise to apply a fundamental framework anchored in classical bottom-up analysis and build a high conviction portfolio.
