Encasa Funds

Encasa Funds allow organizations to invest capital, operating reserves and other investable funds. We offer low-cost, responsible investment options to meet investors’ short and long-term investment needs. Our mutual funds are designed to match investors’ future financial requirements and risk tolerance to an appropriate mix of investments.

For over 16 years, responsible investment has been at the forefront of how we invest, operate and conduct business. Our Funds are invested in companies that conduct themselves in a socially responsible manner, and whose business practices favour the environment, promote workers’ rights and demonstrate strong governance. We believe that good companies make good investments and work with partners who share our philosophy.

Most Encasa investors choose to invest in more than one of our funds. Their investment needs are met by using the appropriate allocation between our three funds. This allocation balances their liquidity needs, long-term return expectations and market exposure appetite.
