An evidence base for institutional investors
We are producing an evidence base for institutional investors of impact investments across asset classes and geographies. UK pension funds in particular, are increasingly adopting sustainable responsible and impact investing practices, reflecting the desire of members for their pensions to be sustainable and reflect their values. We want to make it easier for pension schemes to identify and embrace impact investment opportunities.
As well as UK-specific asset classes and broader opportunities outside the UK, we have produced evidence to help investors consider impact investments in emerging and frontier markets, which you can find below.
Opportunities for impact investing in emerging markets
The case studies were developed in partnership with Dalberg Advisors and with support from the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office’s IMPACT Programme and cover multiple asset classes, themes and geographies, including emerging and frontier markets in Africa, Asia and other global regions. They are accompanied by asset class profiles, which summarise key asset class trends and opportunities in emerging and frontier markets from the perspective of institutional investors. For more information please visit our project site.
In the coming months, we will engage with UK pension funds around the case studies and broader opportunities for impact investing in emerging and frontier markets and support them in embracing those opportunities.
