Tideline’s third annual “State of the Impact Investment Market” Compass Series will explore key market trends, opportunities and risks, and consider where we go from here. We will be joined by leading practitioners to take stock of both the momentum and headwinds for investors targeting positive impact outcomes alongside financial returns; evolving LP appetite and expectations in impact; and recent developments on the regulatory, reporting and disclosure fronts.
Questions to be discussed include:
- To what extent is the definition of “impact investing” shifting in response to either the ESG backlash or regulatory developments – and becoming more or less distinctive?
- What themes, asset classes and sectors are most sought after – and how are critical new solutions emerging (e.g., in equity, in natural capital)?
- How are allocators assessing and prioritizing the impact-related practices of managers, from value creation strategies to accountability through measurement, reporting and impact-linked incentives? Do recent regulatory developments suggest we are headed for a more fragmented or unified approach globally?
