Impact investing: a growing market for institutional investors


The world requires investment on a huge scale to address environmental and social challenges, such as carbon emissions, disease and poverty. As such, impact investing – investing to achieve social or environmental benefits in addition to attractive returns – is a growing area and, given increasing constraints on public resources, mobilising private investment is imperative.

Impact investing is increasingly attracting institutional investors but where are the opportunities beyond equities and what are the considerations for developing a strong impact investing strategy?

This paper includes:

  • Approaches to sustainable and impact investing
  • The appeal of private debt funds in impact investing
  • Objectives of a good impact investing strategy

The value of investments will fluctuate, which will cause prices to fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the original amount they invested.
