Impact investing

Today, more and more investors are seeking both financial and social returns from their investments. We empower investors to build portfolios that have measurable positive returns – socially, environmentally and of course financially.

Investment products that support a more sustainable future

BMO offers a number of options for investors looking for both financial and social returns, including:

  • Our award-winning Responsible Strategies range excludes companies in controversial sectors and promotes sustainability.
  • Our BMO Women in Leadership Fund broke new ground as the first impact investing fund of its kind in Canada, seeking to invest in North American companies with a woman CEO or a board of directors with at least 25% female representation.
  • The BMO Fossil Fuel Free Fund excludes companies primarily involved in extracting and refining fossil fuels and maintaining infrastructure for their distribution.
