PeaceNexus has an endowment fund that is invested to generate a return that can cover the foundation’s operation. In accordance with good investment practice of foundations we want to make sure that the money is invested in line with our mission. For more information see our Mission-related investments guidelines.
For an organisation that works for peace this means that we invest in companies that do not fuel conflict and that play a positive role in the stabilisation and development of ‘fragile states’. To identify publicly traded companies that contribute to peacebuilding, we are working with partners to develop methodologies to measure company peacebuilding performance, with the objective of setting up a Peace Investment Fund that would invest in companies with a positive social impact in fragile states and conflict-sensitive performance. For more information see the page on how companies contribute to peacebuilding and how we measure this.
