What is impact investing?
The Global Impact Investment Network defines it as investments made with the intention to generate positive, measurable social and environmental impact alongside a financial return. Impact investments can be made in both emerging and developed markets, and target a range of returns from below market to market rate, depending on investors' strategic goals.
The growing impact investment market provides capital to address the world’s most pressing challenges in sectors such as sustainable agriculture, renewable energy, conservation, microfinance, and affordable and accessible basic services including housing, healthcare, and education.
Through investment using fair economics, Wellers Impact endeavours to further the objectives set out by the United Nations (UN) in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs were adopted by all UN Member States in 2015 to provide a framework to achieve peace and prosperity for all. Find out more about the SDGs here.
