Brightlight Group was formed out of the Christian Super Impact Investment team in 2016, growing quickly to incorporate leaders from a variety of organisations in the impact investment landscape and to service a broader base of clients.
Since 2007 the Christian Super team had pioneered a market-leading impact investment approach, building out a portfolio of impact investments valued at approximately $150m and covering more than 300 companies. Strong investment performance and considerable interest from other asset owners embarking on their own impact investment journeys proved the ultimate impetus for Brightlight’s formation. The team’s best practice approach was further validated on being awarded GSG’s (Global Steering Group for Impact Investment) Asset Owner of the Year in 2017.
Today, working with governments, superannuation funds, private wealth managers, community trusts and foundations—as well as with other dedicated impact investors—they strive to create a future where all people can flourish, and the sustainability of life on earth is assured.
In servicing their clients' and investors' financial objectives they seek to transform the lives of millions of people from being in deprivation—as defined by the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals)—to long term sustainability. They plan to work with partners to measure this impact accurately, authentically and with regularity over the timeframe of the goals.See more
