Social Impact Investing

What is Impact Investing

  • Also known as ESG or environmental, social and governance factors, social impact investments are investments with the intention to generate social and environmental impact alongside a possible financial return.
  • The growing impact investment market provides capital to address the world’s most pressing challenges in sectors such as sustainable agriculture, renewable energy, conservation, microfinance, and affordable and accessible basic services including housing, healthcare, and education. 

Why do people choose to invest this way?

This is a way for you to invest your money to work directly in organizations, companies or projects whose core mission is to generate financial return alongside making a profound impact on the world.  You’re investing in your future and a just society while promoting a healthy planet!  Match your values to your investments!

You can screen out companies with poor social, environmental or corporate governance records.

How do these investments usually perform?

There is a wide range of expectations as the category includes assets across the risk spectrum in both emerging and developed markets. Numerous studies have shown that the returns are competitive with conventional funds long term.

Please review any applicable investment's prospectus carefully before investing to understand the objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the investment. Additionally, past performance is not indicative of future results.
