Connecting Assets to Impact: ImpactAssets 50 showcases private fund managers that deliver social and environmental impact as well as financial returns
The ImpactAssets 50 - whose 2014 edition was released last week - is an annual showcase of 50 private fund managers that deliver social and environmental impact as well as financial returns. Its free, searchable database provides filtering by asset class, geographic region and issue area, and gives a detailed overview of each firm.
A recent ImpactAssets report explores how the millennial worldview influences the financial strategies of the next generation of investors. It draws on a variety of research as well as insight from investors. Report co-author Lindsay Norcott interviews one of those investors, Michael Sidgmore, founder of NextGenEngage and VP, Investor Network at iCapital Network.
