On Tuesday, 1st March, 09:00-11:00 GMT, we launched our report “Estimating and describing the UK impact investing market“, written in collaboration with EY and supported by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport and Big Society Capital.

Over the last decade, the impact investing market in the UK has developed rapidly but, until the publication of our report, there had been no estimate of its total size. Working across the impact investment field, we obtained data and insights from asset owners, asset managers and industry stakeholders to develop a picture of where the market is today. As well as producing a estimate of market size for the first time, the report also analyses the key attributes and actors within the market today, the levers and drivers that can support its growth and the trends that are likely to dominate it in the future.

Alongside a keynote from Nigel Huddleston MP, Minister for Sport, Tourism, Heritage and Civil Society, the event featured an exploration of the report’s findings and a panel discussion focusing on the development of the impact investing market.
