New Delhi: The Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN) published the sixth edition of its Annual Impact Investor Survey on Wednesday in New York City.

Produced in partnership with JPMorgan Chase & Co. and with support from the UK government through its Department for International Development’s Impact Programme, the survey examines information around investor (including fund managers, foundations, banks, development finance institutions, pension funds, etc.) perspectives, and highlights respondent views on topics such as impact measurement, liquidity and investment decision-making processes.

According to Amit Bouri, CEO, GIIN, vis-a-vis the fifth survey, one key finding to highlight in the current edition is “the significance of impact measurement to investors, which has been consistently noted across recent surveys. In this year’s survey, 99% of respondents report measuring their impact and 65% are using IRIS, which is GIIN’s catalog of social and environmental metrics (or language of impact)”.
