What is impact investing?
Impact investing aims to generate both a financial return and a positive impact on society. It’s the latest stage in the evolution of responsible investing, which began in the 1980s with the emergence of ethical funds created by faith-based groups looking to align their investments with their values.Read moreRead less
Ethical funds were originally about screening out companies such as tobacco growers, casinos and weapons makers. Today investors use Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors to evaluate all companies. Impact investing goes a step further, recognising that portfolios can be biased towards companies that generate positive outcomes for the world, while also delivering strong returns. We define impact investing as investing in companies that are growing because their products and services are delivering innovative solutions to society’s underserved needs. “Impact investing aligns that market-based incentivisation motive with the broader non-financial problems that need fixing,” says Tim Crockford, Head of Regnan Equity Impact Solutions.
