A Diverse Landscape
of Impact Fund Managers
Now in its eleventh year, the ImpactAssets 50™ is the most recognized free database of impact investment fund managers. This annually updated list is a gateway into the world of impact investing for investors, financial advisors and philanthropists. The IA 50 offers an easy way to identify experienced and emerging impact fund managers and is intended to illustrate the breadth of impact fund managers operating today, though it is not a comprehensive list. Fund managers selected to the IA 50 demonstrate a wide range of impact investing activities across geographies, sectors and asset classes.
The IA 50 is not an index or investable platform and does not constitute an offering or recommend specific products. It is not a replacement for due diligence. It is an information resource to begin research on the impact investing sector.
The IA 50 2021 Impact Fund Managers
We’re proud to spotlight impact fund managers across three distinct categories.
*Criteria such as minimum track record or minimum assets under management may not be applicable.
Our Selection Process
To compile our annual list of fund managers, ImpactAssets assembles an annual Review Committee of experienced, respected impact investment leaders.
The IA 50 Review Committee selects firms according to a set of criteria developed to ensure that the list includes a diverse set of firms with experience in the field, scale in terms of AUM and investor base, commitment to impact and representing a range of approaches, asset classes and impact areas. Particular consideration will be given to firms that demonstrate a unique strategy, under-represented impact theme and leadership diversity in view of application pool.
For a more detailed discussion of how ImpactAssets evaluates impact in the selection of the ImpactAssets 50, please review the ImpactAssets Issue Brief: Assessing the Impact Capacity at the Firm Level.
