Impact Cubed, a provider of ESG impact data and portfolio solutions, has struck a strategic partnership with Impact Orange Partners, an Impact consultant and sub-advisory boutique in the Netherlands.

“This collaboration is set to redefine the integration of impact data into the financial landscape of the regional investment community,” it was announced.

Impact Cubed’s mission is the acceleration of capital towards a more sustainable future, the firm claimed, adding that to achieve this, the implementation of best-in-class impact solutions and data is paramount.

“Our collaboration with Impact Orange Partners is a testament to this commitment. By combining our industry-leading data, analytics and investment solutions with their unparalleled knowledge of the local market’s actual implementation challenges, we are poised to offer a holistic impact solution that is second to none,” said Libby Bernick, Impact Cubed’s chief executive officer.

The founders of Impact Orange Partners, Gerard Roelofs (former executive of NNIP and Van Lanschot Kempen, among others), Jan Bertus Molenkamp (former executive and founder of Kempen’s fiduciary division), and Michel Iglesias del Sol (former head of investment strategy at Van Lanschot Kempen and Willis Towers Watson), bring a wealth of experience and a deep understanding of the Dutch institutional investment environment.

“Their vision aligns seamlessly with Impact Cubed’s ethos, emphasising the importance of integrating Impact as an integral part of financial institutions,” Impact Cubed added.

“Impact investing is no longer a niche; it’s rapidly becoming mainstream. However, the prevailing approach to ESG has often been siloed and treated as a tick-box exercise. This fragmented approach undermines the true potential of ESG to drive sustainable value,” said Roelofs of Impact Orange Partners.

“Our work with Impact Cubed is about changing this narrative. We aim to help institutions value impact across their entire value chain – from initial screening and due diligence to portfolio optimisation, all the way through to client and regulatory reporting. It’s not just about data or consulting; it’s an end-to-end, 3D solution that ensures impact is deliberately woven into the very fabric of investment strategies,” he added.

The partnership aims to set a benchmark for ESG integration in Belgium and the Netherlands, it was disclosed.
