Impact Investing: Beyond Traditional Social Investments
The Asia market is growing an appetite for SRI strategies. Traditionally, investors look to engage in responsible investing through screening investments options with a set of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors.
Investors can then adopt different SRI strategies, such as choosing to exclude certain industries or companies from their portfolio, or selecting the company that performs best in its class when measured against ESG factors.
However, today’s investors want to go beyond measuring investments by risk, return and ESG factors. They want to see evidence that their investments generate an impact on society or the environment. Financial returns alone are not satisfactory.
Transparency and accountability is ensured through measuring and reporting social and environmental performance, for example through an increase in job creation or an increase in young people enrolling in higher education. This class of responsible investing is called impact or social impact investing.
