PitchBook takes a deeper dive on impact funds in new report

After more than a year of work, PitchBook Data Inc. has published a new analysis of impact investing that not only tags funds that way but also further characterizes them by the types of impact they hope to provide.

The conclusion: “Investing for the double-bottom line is garnering a huge share of attention among investors, many of whom are waiting on the sidelines, watching to see if the model can be proven out. It will take more granular market-level data than has been previously reported to track the trends, something we are committed to further reporting. Looking at fund-level data, it is clear that impact is not a homogeneous market, as a variety of fund managers are testing out investment models to have a positive impact on the world without sacrificing investment returns.”
