How big is the opportunity for Impact Investments?

We believe that there has never been a better time to be an impact investor. The number of investable opportunities targeting one or more social or environmental positive outcomes has increased dramatically due to technology, innovation and increased awareness. Projects could include more efficient renewable power technologies, affordable micro-finance solutions, and ways to mitigate the significant water shortages expected in the coming decades.



The value of opportunities that align with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) was estimated as a $12 trillion dollar opportunity from 2017 to 2030 (Source: Better Business World; The Report of the Business and Sustainable Development Commission; 2017). We believe this opportunity has only become larger over the last few years as needs have grown in every asset class. See the projected breakdown of the opportunity below.

Additionally, the world is expected to have increased demand on strained resources as a result of the continued growth of the middle class globally. This is expected to increased global water demand by 40% by 2030 and global energy demand by 50% by 2050.

From a social perspective, the impact possible is real and imperative to reduce the risk of poverty and serious health issues across the world.
