Newcore publishes 2022 Impact Report
August 25, 2022
Since Newcore launched over a decade ago, we have tried to run our capital management business in a different way to the mainstream. We believed, even back then, that the “pre-2008” model of capital management – that led to the financial crisis and which was a prelude to current day economic market conditions – was not a sustainable one.
Our 2021/22 Impact Report explains how we try to do this.
Newcore’s mission is simply to deliver strong returns from sustainable investment in social infrastructure.
We are driven by a belief that strong and sustainable risk-adjusted returns are best achieved on a long-term basis when you adhere to a rigorous governance framework and incorporate community and environmental considerations into business plans – both at fund and management platform level. That ethos has helped us to deliver 17%+ p.a. aggregate IRR on AUM since inception (with modest financial leverage) and we were the first dedicated UK real estate investment manager to certify as a B Corporation. For Newcore, the past 12 months have resulted in the formal integration of our social and environmental objectives and the launch of our latest UK social infrastructure fund, NSS V LP. In 2022, we’ve updated our brand, clarified our mission and launched a new website. We’ve also published our latest Impact Report where we reflect on what we’ve done, not managed to do; and what we want to do in the future.
