Impact Investment

Impact Investments are investments made in funds, organizations or companies that have the intent of creating a social or environmental impact alongside the financial returns. Because socially and environmentally responsible practices tend to attract impact investors, companies can financially benefit from committing to socially responsible practices and investors also tend to profit. Impact Investments can be made in either emerging or developed markets and depending on the goals of the investors, can target a range of returns from below-market to above-market rates.
