October 4, 2012

Due to some trav­el we were slow to get this up on the blog, but we are no less thrilled and hon­ored to have been added on Tues­day to the Impact Assets 50 (IA 50 — see full press release here), a resource for advi­sors and investors seek­ing to respond to the grow­ing demand for invest­ment oppor­tu­ni­ties that deliv­er both finan­cial and social or envi­ron­men­tal returns.

The IA 50 is a gate­way  to the impact invest­ing space and is the first open source, pub­licly pub­lished data­base of impact invest­ment fund man­agers.  Accord­ing to the IA 50’s news release, the fund man­agers includ­ed in this year’s IA 50 man­age a com­bined $10.2 bil­lion in assets with­in the impact invest­ing mar­ket, a 15 per­cent growth over assets rep­re­sent­ed in last year’s IA 50.

Cri­te­ria for mak­ing the IA 50:

First announced by Gen­worth Finan­cial Man­age­ment Chair and ImpactAs­sets Board Mem­ber, Ron Cordes at the Clin­ton Glob­al Ini­tia­tive in 2010, an exten­sive appli­ca­tions and review process of fund man­agers across the sec­tor con­duct­ed each year pro­duces the IA 50 list.  In order to be con­sid­ered for the IA 50 2012, fund man­agers need­ed to meet mul­ti­ple cri­te­ria includ­ing hav­ing at least $5 mil­lion in assets under man­age­ment, more than three years expe­ri­ence with impact invest­ing and demon­strat­ed com­mit­ment to impact.
