Commentary: The impact investing talent war heats up
Impact investing has become an important and mainstream strategy for a broad array of institutional investors. As the debate concerning “impact vs. return” evolves, the specialized talent necessary to create and sustain a viable impact investing strategy requires a new generation of leadership. The war for talent in this sector will continue to intensify, as firms continue to compete for the best investment leadership.
With the current value of global impact investments estimated by the Global Impact Investing Network to be more than $500 billion, these massive (and growing) pools of capital need unique and differentiated talent to effectively manage and deploy these funds. Global investors in all asset classes are demanding credible impact investment strategies, and this trend is likely to continue and accelerate.
