At the GSG Summit of social activists and investors in Chicago last month, Sir Ronald Cohen, a British venture capitalist turned impact investor, suggested that a Nobel prize awaits the economist that goes beyond the standard investing concepts of risk and reward and “best frames the interaction between risk, reward and impact.”
More capital would be directed towards achieving social and environmental benefits if impact investments can show they can reduce stakeholder risk, cut the cost of capital, help recruit talent and boost financial returns by uncovering new kinds of profitable investing opportunities, Cohen said.
Philanthropy is a complex topic, and others found these selections from the Impact Giving archive from Giving Compass to be good resources.
