In another example of broadening access to impact investments, Eight Investment Partners, or 8IP, a Sydney-based fund manager, has lowered the investment minimum for its Australian Equity Impact Fund to A$10,000 (US$7,700), from A$100,000.

8IP launched the fund, which invests only in Australian-listed companies, last January.

The fund scores companies against the UN Sustainable Development Goals and is weighted toward healthcare, renewable energy, land and resource management and senior care.
