Can impact investing provide companies, private foundations and individuals the means to align values with investments and support issues they feel strongly about while gaining positive returns?

In Part 1, Impact investing Expert and the Founder of Potrero Impact Advisors Dan Crisafulli discussed how social capital can play a critical role in facilitating scalable solutions for the environmental and social challenges we face today.

Now, he wraps up by examining how organizations must adhere within a somewhat undefined code of ethics and qualifications to allow their investments to mirror an alignment between their values and intentions. Noting that a truly authentic impact investment benefits humanity in a variety of ways, he also examines where this intersection exists and how to differentiate between true impact and hype.

With the Rockefeller Foundation and JPMorgan Chase recently reporting an exciting decade for impact investing ahead - a $1 trillion opportunity -  Crisafulli also talks about what needs to happen to protect the integrity of the impact investing market as it mainstreams. "When you look at microfinance, medical, agriculture, waste, and clean technology - there is an infectious impetus to invest wisely. And a hunger for knowledge to do so with the same rigor as traditional investing," he says.

As hundreds of investors, philanthropists, nonprofit leaders and other experts descend on the Fort Mason Center in San Francisco to attend SoCap Markets this week, here's a look at Crisafulli's useful advice.
