Building an evidence base
The Institute’s goal is to make evidence and data around impact investing more accessible so that investors feel confident to pursue a long-term impact investing strategy. That is why we are building an evidence base of impact investing opportunities in the UK and emerging markets that looks at risk and return as well as impact profiles across asset classes.
Place-based impact investing
Together with the Good Economy and Pensions for Purpose, we are working on a collaborative research project aimed at mobilising more flows of institutional investment to address place-based inequalities and support more inclusive and sustainable development across the UK.
Place-based impact investments include investments in social and affordable housing, clean energy, infrastructure and small- and medium- sized businesses.
We are also working with CDC, the UK’s development finance institution, on communicating and contextualising its data on the performance of private equity investments in Africa to investors.
