It is our pleasure to inform you that today, SocialAlpha-Bastion Fund, managed by ALPHAMUNDI GROUP, was named a Best for the World Fund by B the Change Media, for setting the measurement bar in impact investing, based on its Global Impact Investment Ratings System (GIIRS) Rating. Together with all honorees, we will be featured in the Winter issue of B Magazine and on B the Change Media’s digital platform, bthechange.com, within their impact investing section. Both platforms have a special editorial section dedicated to impact investing.
SocialAlpha-Bastion Fund is honored as a Best for the World Fund, which includes investment funds that have completed the rigorous GIIRS Rating, a third-party verification of the fund’s investment impact administered by the independent nonprofit B Lab. This comprehensive, comparable level of impact measurement and evaluation is critical to satisfying the market’s need to compare and measure a fund’s portfolio impact performance. Thus, SocialAlpha-Bastion Fund has demonstrated leadership in the quest to achieve credibility for impact investing across asset classes.
