Annual Impact Investor Survey 2017

The GIIN’s 2017 Annual Impact Investor Survey is based on an analysis of the activities of 209 of the world’s leading impact investing organizations, including fund managers, foundations, banks, development finance institutions, family offices, pension funds, and insurance companies. Survey respondents collectively manage nearly USD 114 billion in impact assets, a figure which serves as the best-available “floor” for the size of the impact investing market.

In its seventh edition, this state of the market report presents investors’ perspectives on key issues important to the impact investing industry, as well as analysis of their investment activity, asset allocations by geography, sector, and investment instrument, impact measurement practice, and performance. For the first time, the GIIN also examined investor perspectives on current market topics, such as market segmentation, the role of below-market-rate capital in impact investing, the entry of large-scale financial firms into the market, and impact investing in public equities. New topics also include investors’ commitment to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
