Impact Investing

Understanding current market trends with impact investing and identifying the types of investments that are most attractive to investors.

Understanding Impact Investing

Impact investing is driven by the desire to create positive social or environmental outcomes in addition to financial returns. Investors are increasingly interested in impact investment as they seek to align their values with their investments and support in addressing pressing global issues such as poverty, climate change, and inequality.

As investors seek to marry their values with their investments, there is growing evidence that impact investments can be financially viable, driving increased interest in the field. This sector will likely continue to grow as more investors become aware of the opportunities available in solving environmental and social issues. We foresee more investors turning to ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) criteria to evaluate investments.

The benefits of impact investing can not only be limited to only financial returns and creating positive social and environmental impacts. However, it can also provide investors access to new markets and alternative opportunities and give them a way to diversify their portfolios further and address global challenges. Additionally, impact investors may receive tax incentives, such as tax credits, for their investments.

Impact investment can take many forms, including direct investments in companies, funds, projects, social enterprises, and public markets. Such investments

  1. Lack of Liquidity:Ā Sustainable investments can be long-term and illiquid investments. Unlike buying and selling shares, investors may be unable to sell their investments when they need liquidity. This can be an issue for investors who may require early access to their invested capital.Ā 
  2. High Fees: Impact and sustainable investing can be expensive, as many require specialised knowledge and expertise. This can lead to higher fees for investors.Ā 
  3. Limited Investment Opportunities: Impact and sustainable investing can be limited in the number of investment opportunities available. This can make it difficult for self-directed investors to find suitable investments.Ā
