The increased scale of impact investing is moving the practice definitively beyond a niche reserved for foundations and philanthropists, to a broader range of asset classes and a much wider group of investors.
George Latham, Managing Partner and Chief Investment Officer of WHEB Group says his experience at WHEB is that investors of all types are increasingly interested in the purpose of their investments, and want to understand the impact of their savings and investments on the wider world. He spoke recently at our Meet the UK B Corps event on 27 June.
“Much of the research and development work at WHEB has been to integrate the financial analysis of positive impact into the investment process. In this way we can better asses, measure and report on the extent to which the financial performance of companies and their positive social, environmental and economic outcomes move in lock step with each other.
As many of our investors know, the FP WHEB Sustainability Fund is solely invested in companies providing solutions to sustainability challenges.
This third Impact Report builds on our leadership in measuring and communicating the extent of this positive impact.”
