Survey Shows Market Growth in Impact Investments and Satisfaction Among Investors – Press Releases on CSRwire.com

Survey Shows Market Growth in Impact Investments and Satisfaction Among Investors – Press Releases on CSRwire.com | Social Finance Matters (investing and business models for good) | Scoop.it

J.P. Morgan and the Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN) released today Perspectives on Progress, a report that reveals the experiences, expectations, and perceptions of 99 impact investors in 2012, as well as their plans for 2013. The survey indicates a growing market, with respondents planning to commit USD 9 billion to impact investing in 2013, up from a total commitment of USD 8 billion in 2012.

Additionally, the vast majority of surveyed investors report that their impact investment portfolio performance is meeting or exceeding social, environmental, and financial expectations, which is critical to impact investments as impact investors seek measurable social and environmental impact alongside financial returns.  Two-thirds of respondents are principally pursuing market-rate financial returns. Investors surveyed for the report include fund managers, development finance institutions, foundations, diversified financial institutions, and other investors with at least USD 10 million committed to impact investment.

“At J.P. Morgan Social Finance, we are especially encouraged by the findings in this survey – that, despite the market’s early stage, investors' portfolios are meeting financial expectations in addition to social and environmental expectations,” said Yasemin Saltuk, Director of Research for J.P. Morgan Social Finance and co-author of the report. “The findings from this report are insightful and we are optimistic for the continued growth in investments that have a positive social and environmental impact.”
