The shortcomings of traditional philanthropy and government interventions have given rise to a new generation of investing strategies aimed at tackling the world’s most pressing problems. Impact investing harnesses the power of the markets and social entrepreneurship to build and accelerate scalable and sustainable solutions to critical social and environmental challenges.
While many private investors, family offices and foundations seek to adopt this new approach and align their capital with their values, the current underdeveloped market structure serves as an impediment to engagement. These investors face three main challenges:
Dearth of Independent and Objective Data. Much of the research in the impact investing sector is curated by those selling or promoting financial products. Investors seeking objective data must embark on expensive self-funded research projects.
Superficial Frameworks to Measure Impact. The lack of finer-grained research makes it difficult for private investors to understand the social or environmental outcomes of investments, particularly at the sector level.
Undefined Pathway to Participation. Most legitimate impact investments are private, making it difficult for individual investors to find, pursue, and evaluate deals and investment opportunities.
Despite the abundant activity in the impact investing sector, these challenges remain largely unaddressed. Many impact investors still struggle to understand how they can put their capital to work addressing the social and environmental issues they are passionate about.
