A challenging economic climate for investors, donors and nonprofits alike has prompted increased interest in "impact investing," leveraging a broad range of investments to address major social and environmental problems while also earning a return. For investors exploring this nascent field, Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors has published Solutions for Impact Investors: From Strategy to Implementation, practical guidance on tightening the link between making investment decisions and impact.
Written by a team of practitioners, advisors and academics, Solutions for Impact Investors is designed for investors who may have made social purpose investments but not yet connected them to an overall investment strategy, and traditional investors struggling with whether - and how - to integrate impact investing into existing asset allocation models. This includes philanthropic foundations and endowments seeking to enhance their knowledge of social, mission- and program-related investments, and individual and institutional investors and their advisors.
