Impact investing allows you to put your money where your mouth is, and help the world in the process.

Impact investing is everything the name implies – it’s all about investments in companies that make a positive impact on society and on their communities.
No question, investing in Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG), the more formal name for impact investing, has both rewards and risks, but that’s not stopping legions of investors from getting involved.
According to the Global Impact Investing Network, the global impact investment market stands at $502 billion in 2019.
Expect that figure to rise as more investors (especially younger ones) decide that “doing well by doing good” is their go-to investment strategy going forward, and as impact investing becomes their investment model of choice.
