What is Impact Investing?
"Impact Investing: Actively placing capital in businesses and funds that generate social and/or environmental good and at least return nominal principal to the investor."
(Monitor Institute, 2009)
"Impact investments are investments made into companies, organizations, and funds with the intention to generate social and environmental impact alongside a financial return. Impact investments can be made in both emerging and developed markets, and target a range of returns from below market to market rate, depending on investors' strategic goals." (Global Impact Investing Network - GIIN, 2018)
