Finance for Impact is a public policy and research firm exclusively focused on sustainable finance and social impact.
Their objective is to improve financial access and inclusion, strengthen the quality of financial governance and promote the integration of sustainability concerns into mainstream financial practice. This conviction guides everything they do as an organization and the choices they make. They inform both our long-term strategy as a firm and the way we serve our clients on a daily basis.
Founded in the midst of the global financial crisis, Finance for Impact was established under the vision that the world economy needed to be supported by a sustainable financial system.
Decades of unprecedented growth in many regions has significantly reduced poverty. At the same time, new development issues have emerged to create intense strain on our ecosystems, drive stark inequality in some of the world’s most populous countries, and undermine the very sources of prosperity. These new issues highlight the need to rethink financial governance and the role of the private sector to build a better future and raise living standards.
Since its inception, our firm has advised policy makers, governments and businesses to design and implement strategies and projects fostering economic growth compatible with human welfare and a healthy environment.
In past years, Finance for Impact expanded swiftly, to reach over 100 client engagements in 60 countries, many of them in the world’s most vulnerable economies. Our work directly contributed into the transformation of the economic environment at a local and national levels, thus improving the lives of citizens and increasing economic opportunities for communities and businesses in developing and transition economies.
