Investing for profit and the philanthropic use of financial resources are commonly perceived as irreconcilable alternatives. Nevertheless, in recent times we have seen a rise in awareness of impact investing, which is defined by yielding both a social and a financial return.

Impact investing in India has the potential to grow from $1 billion worth of investments in 2015 to $6-8 billion by 2025 ( source McKinsey & Co). India is one of the world’s biggest markets for impact investing, given the nation’s many pressing social needs and an abundance of global capital.
