We’re grateful to the Global Impact Investing Network for a handy cheat sheet of the last couple years of research on impact investing financial performance. To better inform investment decisions and attract new participants to the sector, says the industry association, impact investors “can do more to embrace their field-building responsibilities” by being more transparent with their performance data.
This sort of transparency around performance, writes Mudaliar, “allows new players to enter the market confidently, and enables current players to make more informed portfolio allocation decisions, set well-informed performance expectations, and better achieve their investment strategies.”
Impact investors can do more to build the field, says Mudaliar, “by openly sharing data on the financial and impact performance of their investments, either directly to the public or by contributing to aggregated, third-party research.”
