Ten Years Since Industry Was Formally Established, Impact Investing Exhibits Growing Track Record and Broad Investor Satisfaction
The Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN) today published the seventh edition of its Annual Impact Investor Survey report, which presents continued progress in the dynamic impact investing industry, officially established only ten years ago. Capturing data from 209 of the world’s leading impact investors, this survey presents a detailed analysis of market activity, capital flows (including by geography and sector), and investor insights into key market topics. In 2016, survey respondents committed a total of USD 22.1 billion into nearly 8,000 impact investments. In total, respondents manage nearly USD 114 billion in impact investing assets, a figure which serves as a bestavailable ‘floor’ for the size of the impact investing market.
