Global Impact Investing Market Passes US$1 Trillion

The Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN) has estimated that the size of the worldwide impact investing market now exceeds US$1 trillion. The GIIN’s new report estimates that more than 3,349 organisations currently manage the industry’s US$1.164 trillion in impact investing assets worldwide. The report highlights green bonds and corporate impact investing practices as key areas of development. Based on a sample of 1,289 organisations, GIIN estimated average impact AUM per organisation at US$485 million. Amit Bouri, GIIN’s Co-Founder and CEO, said: “While the market growth to US$1.164 trillion serves as a very positive sign for impact investing, it is also a call for further action. Investing more capital with an intentional focus to generate positive impact is required right now if we truly want to meet the UN Sustainable Development Goals by 2030 and achieve net zero emissions by 2050”.
