Social impact

It is possible to ally profit with purpose, creating products for those who believe companies to be a force for good; impacting people, investors and the planet

The objective of an investment in positive socio-economic impact is to address social problems such as: education, healthcare, transport, security, infrastructure, etc., seeking a return for investors that are prepared to contribute towards the building of a fairer society. The AZ Quest Azimut Impacto fund is an innovating product that strengthens the ecosystem from social impact in Brazil, preserving the profits of the investor. The fund is open for all Brazilian investors


AZ QUEST AZIMUT Impact

The aim of the fund – AZ Quest Azimut Impacto FIC FIM CP – is to obtain higher returns over the longer term, through active management, than the CDI benchmark. The portfolio is allocated in AZ Quest funds that possess consistent results, high liquidity and low-risk corporate debt.

The profitability of the product is 100% the client’s. The income gained by AZ Quest, generated by the fund administration fee is ploughed back into strengthening the ecosystem of social impact in Brazil, being directly donated towards accelerators and incubators that, in turn, support entrepreneurs with social businesses.

If you are able to invest in a product which has consistent performance, high liquidity, moderate risk and, at the same time, contributes towards building a society with less inequality, and without renouncing your profitability. WHY NOT?
