|JP Morgan calls impact investment a new asset class|
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.
