What is Impact Investing?
Impact investments are investments made with the intention to generate positive, measurable social and environmental impact alongside a financial return. By offering a financial return to investors, impact investing aims to attract much-needed investment to social entities, which play a crucial role in working towards the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals.
