Impact investing exacts financial returns and produces social and environmental rewards. It catalyzes opportunities and reduces the adversities caused by a growing global population and a planet sacked by climate change.
Increasingly, investors have become aware that externalities such as water scarcity, pollution, extreme weather events and unfair labor practices do indeed affect their portfolios’ internal rates of return. By positioning investments toward positive impacts, risks can be reduced and rewards can be furnished across both the financial and social/environmental spectrums.
Direct investments, funds and private equity programs can all play a role in building sustainability and lowering beta. From a portfolio construction standpoint, impact investments are less correlated with the broader markets than traditional stocks and bonds, so they provide diversification during market cycles when sectors become out of favor.
Find out how to face the enemies of the market and battle the world’s social ills through these elite investing tactics. This is how the world’s wealthiest invest. G8 leaders are even turning to impact investing to win on both the financial and social/environmental fronts. Learn from the industry’s best and brightest how to actively engage in impact investing and stoke your clients toward a brighter and more prosperous future.
