A Portfolio Approach to Impact Investment: A Practical Guide to Building, Analyzing and Managing a Portfolio of Impact Investments

J.P. Morgan Social Finance produces thought leadership and analytical research on the impact investment market, in addition to their principal investment and client advisory capabilities. To date, they have published a flagship market landscape and sizing study as well as a more in-depth analysis of over 2,000 private transactions – the largest data set in the market. Building off of that work, this new research presents a portfolio management tool to analyze impact investments across the three dimensions that determine the performance of these assets: impact, return and risk. Using their own portfolio and drawing from the experiences of over twenty leading impact investors, they have created a graphical framework to set targets, map investments and aggregate the profile of an impact investment portfolio as a whole. The work responds to an increasing demand for portfolio management strategies from both new and experienced impact asset managers, as market opportunities and portfolios grow. Read more »

However because of the different roles that are assigned to men and women, any major change in living situation such as energy access has the potential to affect men and women differently. While there are many anecdotes suggesting that gaining access to modern energy brings specific benefits to women, rigorous impact evaluation studies are harder to find. This paper reviews the evidence from available studies on how gaining access to electricity and clean cooking impacts women and girls. Read more »
