Our Portfolios

Voluntas Investments focuses on innovative investment opportunities that provide a return exceeding the MSCI World Index over our customers’ horizon and create a positive social impact through the deployment of our principles. To qualify as a “Voluntas Investment”, the company must sign an agreement on implementing our three principles into the management and operations of the organization as well as include a Voluntas representative into the board of directors. On behalf of our customers, we take active ownership in the development and growth of the company and oversee the implementation of our principles.

Our facilitated investments are split into two different portfolios, Voluntas Infants for seed, startup and first stage companies, and Voluntas Adults for small and medium-sized companies, both grounded in our core principles – Meaningfulness, Diversity, and Sustainability. We focus on companies that care about social responsibility and aim at making a difference within their field.
