Strategic benefits Zamo can provide to investors
Discovering Impact Managers
Zamo supports its investors to discover impact managers
Through our theme-based deal origination approach, Zamo identifies cutting edge themes in impact investing. These include advanced plastics recycling, blue economy, affordable housing and the future of work.
Investors will get to know new impact managers they have not come across that have the potential to scale beyond €1bn. This will include impact managers that may not yet be on the radar as impact managers.

Opportunities to make investments into Impact managers
Zamo provides its investors access to impact managers
Zamo’s Pipeline of European Impact Managers
A challenge faced by many investors looking to invest in impact is the absence of managers able to accept a €30m+ cheque whilst ensuring that the investment is no more that 15% of the fund.
By investing in Zamo, our investors can obtain a front row seat and observe how our managers mature over time. We provide investors who may wish to invest in Zamo’s underlying managers with performance data over time as opposed to a curated snapshot of performance (when they are fundraising).
Investors can use their front row seat to put them in a better position to get an allocation in the most successful of Zamo’s investee managers when they raise their next funds.

Reducing the commercial and reputational risk of investing in impact managers
Zamo works with investors to reduce commercial and impact washing risk
We are hands-on aligned investors, with a history of success in scaling impact fund managers. We partner and work intensively with a small number of impact managers (8-10) to increase the chance of success and minimize their chance of failures.
Green Washing risk
Zamo conducts a rigorous assessment before we invest to ensure that the manager meets our criteria for genuine impact.
We work with investors to help align their impact assessment and ours.
By investing through us, investors have the ability to watch the fund manager over time to ensure that they have the kind of impact that the investor is looking for.
