The global recognition and value of impact investing continues to increase, but there is still much room for improvement.
The mobilisation of capital to enterprises and activities that create positive social change has faced multiple challenges – including the need to be able to effectively speak about impact in a consistent language and manage the effects of investments. However, recent advances from initiatives including the Impact Management Project have sought to improve this and assist impact funds to maximise the social returns of their investments.
So, how does an impact fund that is committed to creating positive social change make this a reality? What is being done well and importantly what is still needed to make the maximisation of impacts a reality? On this topic, we invited global experts:
- Stefanie Kneer – Former Head of Impact Management, Bridges Fund Management
- Steven Serneels – Former CEO and current Chair of the European Venture Philanthropy Association (EVPA).
They discussed the progress made by impact funds and how their insights and experiences have leveraged greater impacts for investors as well as investees.
