Private Equity Impact Investing

Private Equity Impact Investing

In this video, Gavin explores the viability of impact investing, i.e. achieving both financial and social returns on investment, and outlines where this concept relates to private equity.
Overview

Impact investment is an investment strategy which explicitly combines the dual objectives of financial returns as well as social good, with the underlying idea that there need not be trade offs between the two. Dedicated impact funds still represent a small minority of total private equity investors today. The still open questions in impact investment are firstly, how to measure social returns; and secondly, whether it is really possible to achieve dual returns without trade offs.

Key learning objectives:

  • How impact investments are structured

  • The context of and players in impact investment

  • The intersection between private equity and impact investment
