We provide investment opportunities that deliver against the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals; We are however more than just a fund manager. Symon Capital is involved in the very inception and origination of projects, understanding their commercial viability, as well as setting up platforms for the sustainable delivery of measurable returns within an impact framework. We help organisations to structure propositions to maximise and monitor financial, social, environmental and governance benefits and returns to all stakeholders.
We want to improve people’s lives immediately and for future generations. There are too many people in the world who don’t have access to the most basic of human rights.
We want to affect long term transformative change that improves human rights while delivering social, environmental and financial returns.
We believe that enabling a fairer society where every person has access to the benefits of being more energy and water efficient helps us all.

We are committed to only working with organisations that are positively assisting and empowering humanity for good.
We focus our energy on assisting those people that need it most - often oppressed and marginalised communities from developing nations, indigenous Australians, women and girls who need this assistance more than most, and people across the world deprived of health and education opportunities, including integrated and balanced health offerings and mental health initiatives in developed countries.
Healthcare. If there is inadequate healthcare available in a region, it is unlikely that these people will be able to progress. We are currently working on a major healthcare initiative in Bangladesh to build a teaching hospital in Dhaka with an emphasis on women and children.
Renewables are a key pillar, as we believe these industries offer new opportunities to those people we are trying to assist, while also having a positive impact on the world around us.
Education is widely regarded as the first step towards prosperity. Working towards a world where everyone gets the opportunity to have an education is another core pillar in our mission. We have experience in both basic education programming in Indonesia and investing in a post-graduate Education Academy supported by Desmond Tutu for the development of Governance and Social Policy. We also work in the Australian pre-school education sector, contributing to the social fabric of positive child care options for families.
We work with businesses that are genuinely committed to providing a fair wage to every person within the supply chain. We are currently working with an Australian company that imports wonderful coffee, direct from villages in Vietnam and Indonesia and distributes through Byron Bay in Australia.
We work on connecting capital with measurable impact ready projects. We are supported by a number of capital sources and major funds.
We work with a specialist impact investment partner The Global Impact Initiative. With the endorsement of groups like the UN and Malala Fund, Global Impact Initiative works with global sources of capital to create bespoke investment solutions in partnership with some of the world’s largest investment managers. All Global Impact Initiatives strategies are measured and mapped to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
We keep a strong focus on our mission by working with global leaders in Human Rights. Amnesty International is a global non-governmental organization focused on human rights and social justice with over seven million supporters worldwide.
