What's next for impact investing in Australia?
The Australian impact investing market has grown considerably in recent years. This growth has largely been attributed to a surge of impact investments that focus on environmental, rather than social, outcomes, which is in contrast to global investor sentiment. We analyse these trends and consider how the current growth in the broader impact investing market could be capitalised for social impact investments through the implementation of proven initiatives and the removal of barriers to growth.
Institutional investors are among the biggest and most sophisticated investors across all asset classes, and they invest globally.
