“Until recently there were not many opportunities for socially conscious investors — either institutional or individual — to pursue financial returns and the greater good with the same investment. But that’s all changing, thanks to the emerging field of impact investing, and the impact investors who are building a new kind of marketplace in which financial and social returns are closely linked.” -Judith Rodin, President, Rockefeller Foundation

Impact Investment is a New Asset Class - JP Morgan

JP Morgan calls impact investment a new asset class
The entire area of impact investing has been growing in leaps and bounds.  Now, however, the ultimate validation of the efficacy of impact investing has emerged. Global banking power JP Morgan recently came out with a report on impact investing describing it as a "new asset class" altogether.

What is absolutely amazing is how JP Morgan's report explicitly distinguished between impact investment and socially responsible investments (SRI).  Below is a highlight from the introduction of the report:

"Impact investments are investments intended to create positive impact beyond financial return....We distinguish impact investments from the more mature field of socially responsible investments (“SRI”), which generally seek to minimize negative impact rather than proactively create positive social or environmental benefit."

Given that Green World offers a number of impact investments, we are obviously thrilled to see one of the largest financial institutions in the world lending such legitimacy to the asset class.  GreenWorld offers impact investments in the area of carbon trading, ethical farmland investment, renewable energy and forestry.  If you would be interested to learn more about GreenWorld's impact investments and/or would like to receive a copy of the JP Morgan report, please feel free to contact us at info@greenworldbvi.com
