The results from the most recent Impact Investor Survey are out. There’s great news from the survey, conducted annually by J.P. Morgan and the Global Impact Investment Network. Respondents to the survey are managing 60 billion in impact investments today.
There was a 7% increase in committed capital from 2013-2014 and the intention to grow investments another 16% in the next year.
The regions with the largest anticipated growth in investment are Sub-saharan Africa and Southeast Asia. The sectors with the largest anticipated growth are energy and food and agriculture.
While $60 Billion represents growth in the field to be celebrated, to put it in perspective that’s only about .028% of the 212 Trillion in global financial markets (as of 2010, and also growing fast).
