Growing Impact : New Insights into the Practice of Impact Investing (Inglês)

With the global economy now enmeshed in a deep recession, the impact investment field is facing a crucial stress test as companies scale up their response to COVID-19 and look towards shaping a greener, more resilient and inclusive recovery. At the time of writing, emerging economies were facing a dramatic drop in international and domestic private investment. In spite of that, initial indicators from this report show the impact investing market has been growing and maturing. The authors estimate the market size for total assets of potential private impact investors to be slightly above 2 trillion dollars in 2019. The market uptake of the Operating Principles is also growing strongly. The 58 investors who gathered in Washington, D.C. one year ago have evolved into a community of almost 100 signatories managing an estimated 300 billion dollars for impact and stemming from 26 different countries across 5 continents. Together, they now form a self-organized community of practice that is deepening its work to align impact measurement systems into a common core of metrics that will further improve comparability across funds and institutions. For example, signatories are working together with the GIIN and IMP to agree on common impact metrics for key themes such as climate, gender, and direct jobs. This critical agenda will help public market investors finance companies that contribute to solutions to social or environmental challenges. It will help commercial banks start to build portfolios of impact-based loans. And it will promote further alignment between the impact measurement and reporting of firms and that of the investors within those firms. This report, Growing Impact, follows IFC’s first assessment of the global market for impact investing and investor practices, Creating Impact, published in April 2019.
