Making Impact Investible

Impact investing (also referred to as “social finance”, “social impact investing”, “blended value investing” or “impact finance”) has gained significant momentum in recent years. As we move through the first quarter of the twenty-first century, this is perhaps the biggest idea to renew the relevance of finance for the real economy and social progress. Estimates indicate that impact investing could become a new asset class or investment style that will grow to USD 1 trillion by the end of the decade.

Enterprise impact is the social value of the goods, services, or other benefits provided by the investee enterprise.
