“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

What is Impact Investing?

Impact Investing is a new asset class
Impact investing refers to investments that go beyond just seeking a financial return, but also try to generate a broader social and environmental impact through the investment.  The impact investment is generally made into projects that have a specific intention of generating measurable social and environmental impact alongside a financial return. 
Impact investments can be made in both emerging and developed markets, and across a variety of asset classes and sectors. In sum, an impact investor seeks to create social good or improve the health of the environment, as well as achieve financial returns.
This is just a brief overview of impact investing, and future posts we will go into more detail on what makes impact investing unique and what are some specific examples of impact investing projects.  Please contact us at info@greenworldbvi.com if you have any questions.
