Sustainable and impact investing is attracting enough capital to start having a meaningful impact on the world’s most pressing problems. Globally, more than $22.8 trillion is invested sustainably, representing more than one dollar for every four dollars under professional management. The rapid pace of recent growth has been driven by a fundamental shift in how investors and asset owners view environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors. As the fastest growing segment of sustainable investing, impact investing is a strategy that modern investors, financial advisors, and money managers need to be well versed in, especially as a new generation of investors clamor for it.
