A Primer on Impact Investing
Impact investments, also known as community investments and mission-related investments, aim to solve social or environmental challenges while generating financial return. Presented in October as part of the Lunchbox Speakers Series at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto, this presentation addresses impact investing in the global and local marketplace. It attempts to serve as a helpful and informative introduction to the industry.
The presentation outlines the evolution of the marketplace, where it is today, and what it might look like over the next five to ten years. It also assesses the size of the marketplace, highlights key players, and raises important questions about capital supply and demand as well as intermediation in the Canadian context.
