Sustainability plays an integral role in all aspects of FIM Capital and being based at our home on the Isle of Man which as a nation has been granted UNESCO Biosphere status, we are uniquely placed to appreciate the importance of our environment.
As part of our focus on supporting our natural environment and protecting our future we have made a number of public commitments.
The Principles for Responsible Investment were developed by an international group of investors reflecting the increasing relevance of environmental, social and corporate governance issues to investment practices. By becoming a signatory FIM Capital is committed to integrating ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) factors into our investment analysis, decision making and active ownership.
We are delighted to support Beach Buddies a local beach cleaning charity which was founded by Bill Dale whose work has been recognised internationally and featured in international publications such as the National Geographic and on BBC World News.

FIM Capital is delighted to provide both financial and other support to this important local charity.
As a project partner FIM Capital are proud to support the active conservation work undertaken to protect the outstanding landscapes, incredible biodiversity and outstanding sense of community of the Isle of Man.

Cast your minds back to 2014, when the Caribbean Island of Puerto Rico, burdened by a chronic budget deficit, spooked the US municipal bond market by passing legislation to restructure some of its enormous $73bn debt pile.
