Objectives

The Alquity Transforming Lives Foundation is the charitable arm of Alquity Investment Management.

Alquity is an asset management business that connects investors to their investments and social progress in order to deliver better outcomes for all. At the heart of Alquity lies a fundamental belief that by aligning the values of investors, employees, holdings and communities we can deliver enduring success.

The Alquity Transforming Lives Foundation is how Alquity actively participates in the economic development of the communities within the regions in which we invest (Asia, Africa, Latin America). We do this from the ground up, creating opportunities for individuals and communities to pursue and realise their ambitions. In this way we help build fairer more sustainable economies that respect all their constituents.

By harnessing this energy and talent, economies create wealth and provide more opportunities for businesses, including our fund holdings, to grow over the long term. This helps our funds deliver attractive returns for our investors and completes the Alquity Virtuous Circle.
