A new wave of investors is using impact investing to address
some of the greatest challenges of our time—from climate change and water scarcity
to lack of access to health care, education, and affordable housing—with the
intention of also generating a financial return.
This couldn’t happen at a more critical time. While
philanthropy continues to be a transformative force for good, global philanthropic
funds, even when combined with the development or aid budgets of many national
governments, add up to mere billions of dollars. Meanwhile, the cost of solving
the world’s problems runs into the trillions.
In The Power of Impact
Investing, Rockefeller Foundation president Judith Rodin and Margot
Brandenburg, two of the foremost experts in the field, explain what impact
investing is, how it compares to philanthropy and traditional investments,
where opportunities are evolving around the world, and how to get started.
By sharing moving stories of impact investors and the
exciting social enterprises benefiting from these investments, Rodin and
Brandenburg offer a compelling resource for anyone interested in better
understanding the power of impact investing—including retail investors,
high-net-worth individuals, and heads of family offices, foundations, banks,
and pension funds—while also offering experienced impact investors an
opportunity to deepen their knowledge and benefit from the perspectives of
other investors. Download and start listening now!
