WHY IMPACT INVESTING COULD BE MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER
There is a groundswell of popular mainstream opinion now demanding that Governments and businesses do more to help the environment and sustainability. Action is being taken by Governments and businesses, and indeed voters, consumers and investors all now voting with their feet to drive more businesses to adopt “ESG” policies.
Last year, flows into U.S. sustainable funds more than tripled, marking the fourth year of record flows. Talking about sustainability “is a way to build better relationships with clients. In 2019, according to the Global Impact Investing Network, assets in this market totalled around $500 billion, based on surveys with 1,300 impact investors.
Investors no longer want to be associated with or contributing to companies that may harm society, on the wrong side of new sustainability guidelines or going against popular consumer views and trends.
This is where impact technologies come in. Impact technologies are those which provide a meaningful benefit to people’s lives directly or indirectly.
Rather than investing in ESG public companies or impactful businesses, the Boundary Capital Impact Life Fund focuses on investing in early-stage private “B2B” (Business to Business) technology companies that have the potential to enable and transform markets to make the most impact.
