Approach

Who We Are

i(x) is a permanently capitalized holding company – not a fund – that addresses areas of human need.  

Our shareholders include some of the world’s leading families, who have joined together to address critical global challenges.

i(x) invests in critical areas of human need (renewable energy, green real estate development, attainable and sustainable tech enabled housing, waste to fuels, sustainable food and agriculture and carbon to value) in a multi-strategy approach throughout the entire capital structure.  

Our businesses and platforms are focused on access to genuine ESG opportunities that promote the necessary transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy, diversity, financial inclusion and transparent corporate governance. 

We have deployed significant capital and resources to Energy Transition and Sustainability in the Built Environment. These opportunities are at the forefront of our ability to deploy intentional capital at scale, while providing institutional quality investments for our shareholders and partners.

A New Era for Impact Investing

All investments have the potential for a positive social impact – it is time to align our investments with our values. The research is clear: companies that do good in the world return more profits to their shareholders than their counterparts. i(x) is designed to lead us into the next era of investing.

1989
Avoid Doing Harm – The practice of screening out harmful investments—commonly called Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG)—gains traction with the launch of the nonprofit Ceres after the disastrous Exxon Valdez oil spill.
2007 – 2008
Do Some Good – The term impact investing is coined and the Global Impact Investing Network is launched.
2015
With the launch of i(x) investments, co-founded by Trevor Neilson and Howard W. Buffett, investors can now maximize and measure their economic and social returns.

Measuring Social Impact

i(x) investments brings a new standard to measuring social impact – one that expects catalytic social returns.

We use a proprietary methodology framework that measures how effective an investment is at accomplishing a specific impact, and how much of a given platform’s impact goal is achieved by that investment.

The Potential is Staggering

“From 2012 to 2014, sustainable, responsible, and impact investing enjoyed a growth rate of more than 76 percent, increasing from $3.74 trillion in 2012.”

– US SIF, 2014

“An 18-month study found that only 9 percent of 1,800 retail investors and wealthy individuals surveyed had made impact investments, despite more than half (56 percent) reporting an interest in doing so.”

– Financial Times, 2015

“As of year-end 2013, more than one out of every six dollars under professional management in the United States – $6.57 trillion or more – was invested according to Socially Responsible Investing strategies.”

– US SIF, 2014
