Impact Investment Allocations To Grow


    Investors committed more than $15 billion to impact investments in 2015 and plan to allocate even more this year, says the Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN). It found that 79 per cent planned to maintain or increase their impact investments in 2016. In total, respondents said they planned to commit nearly $18 billion to the sector this year. Nearly three-quarters said their investments performed as expected in 2015, with 19 per cent reporting outperformance versus expectations. Just 11 per cent said their impact investments underperformed last year.
