Investing for Global Impact 2021

What world will you make possible? Influence tomorrow

Are you ready to influence tomorrow?

The global appetite for sustainable investing is growing at a phenomenal pace, and it’s a megatrend that we believe is set to continue. Investors are sensing the opportunity and even the obligation, to align their portfolios with their values, in the belief that purpose and profit can co-exist.

The COVID-19 pandemic, the climate emergency and rising social inequalities are just some of the drivers behind the recent shift towards sustainable investing, together with greater awareness around the importance of non-financial factors for investment returns.

Investing for Global Impact 2021: A Power for Good

We’re delighted to unveil the eighth, annual edition of ‘Investing for Global Impact 2021: A Power for Good’ report.
