Impact investing guide

Learn more about impact investing with our made simple guide

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) integration has become a salient component of best-practice investment management in recent years.

Impact investing is now the fastest-growing area of responsible investment. The World Economic Forum estimates that $1 trillion of assets will be committed to impact investing by 2020, which means the sector is forecasted to grow by $250 billion annually.

There is clearly an opportunity to make a positive impact on people and the planet through investment, while also generating healthy returns for investors. In this guide we look at the growing importance of ESG investment with a particular focus on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and outline why impact investing will drive future growth.
