ImpactAssets 50: An Annual Showcase of Impact Investment Fund Managers
The ImpactAssets 50 (IA 50) is the first publicly available database of experienced private debt and equity impact investment fund managers.
This annually updated list is a gateway into the world of impact investing for investors and their financial advisors, offering an easy way to identify experienced impact investment firms. The IA50 is intended to illustrate the breadth of impact investment fund managers operating today. Fortunately, there are more than 50 top tier impact investment funds in the world -- which means not all are included in the IA 50. These 50 firms have been selected to demonstrate a wide range of impact investing activities across geographies, sectors and asset classes. The IA 50 is not an index or an investable platform; rather, it is an information resource to begin research on the impact investing sector.
The following two charts illustrate the range of impact focus and geographic focus represented by ImpactAssets 50 managers over the last three years. In curating the list, we aim to highlight a diverse group of managers and the diversity of IA 50 managers has increased as the field has grown. Established fund managers are investing in new sectors and geographies for greater impact, and new fund managers are joining the field.
