Many investors believe that they must forego profits to advance social or environmental goals with their investments, but the World Economic Forum’s Michael Drexler and Abigail Noble say otherwise – advancing good causes and earning good returns can go together. “Impact investing” is a relatively new investment approach that seeks to generate financial returns and to have measurable, positive social effects. This report presents a well-organized, balanced view of impact investing and addresses its obstacles and benefits. getAbstract recommends this intriguing study to foundation executives, family offices, private equity firms, asset managers, institutional investors and high-net-worth individuals considering impact investments for their portfolios.
