If you are a philanthropist, grantmaker, financial advisor or involved in private equity, you have probably come across the term “impact investing” in the past few years. It’s a relatively new concept all over the world, but a particularly nascent one in South Africa.
According to the Global Impact Investing Network, impact investing refers to investments made into companies, organisations and funds with the intention to generate social and/or environmental impact alongside a financial return. At its core, it aims to bring the usually disparate worlds of driving profits and driving social impact – which have traditionally been treated as entirely different activities – together. Investing in commercial models that actively drive and measure social change while delivering financial return to investors is not only possible, but represents a critical strategy to increase and maximise the amount of capital dedicated to impact.
