Hockey stick style growth for impact?

10 Mar, 2021 | Return|

Until recently, the primary focus for most investors was to ensure that the returns on their investments met their financial goals. Today, of equal importance for many is a desire of those investments to have a positive outcome for people and the planet.

Although historically a more misunderstood area of the investment universe, impact investing may now be on the brink of a ‘hockey stick’ style of growth and adoption across the market. In this short video, Square Mile’s Commercial Director, Steve Kenny, discusses the growth in this style of investing and shares recent research undertaken by The Big Exchange, a B2C platform launched in Q4 2020 that exclusively offers impact style investments, highlighting how consumers attitude and behaviour is changing in this space.
