Investing For Good


Investing For Good


The folks at Investing For Good:


Over the years, as a pioneering social investment intermediary, we developed a unique insight into what it takes to make the vision a reality. Our journey has taken us from advising investors on creating portfolios that achieve both financial return and social value through to developing a proprietary impact analysis and rating methodology that has been used to analyse billions of dollars’ worth of impact investments and to arranging impact investment products.
We continue to garner valuable insights from the launch of our Social Bond Programme. These insights allow us to continuously innovate by providing real-world lessons on offering investible products that create social value while generating solid financial returns. We want to share our point of view from three perspectives: what we hear from those around us producing valuable research, what we see on the ground in our work as an intermediary and what we do to evolve and adapt our products in response to the market.
