Introducing the 2020 Investing for Global Impact Report

There is little doubt that 2020 is a challenging year. In the midst of a global pandemic, social uprisings, and a climate change emergency, this study puts the role and responsibility of private wealth into focus. With impact investing being one of the most visible and dynamic sectors in the investment industry, the Investing for Global Impact: A Power for Good research provides valuable insights on opportunities and challenges ahead.
