The Impact Investing Institute was launched in 2019 with a simple mission: to accelerate the growth and improve the effectiveness of the impact investing market in the UK and internationally. We want to see more capital contributing to the well-being of people and the planet – as set out in the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.
We are an independent, non-profit organisation, which brought together two influential initiatives: the Government’s Taskforce for Growing a Culture of Social Impact Investing in the UK and the UK National Advisory Board on Impact Investing.
Our core team works alongside a number of Lead Experts providing pro-bono specialist support in their fields of expertise. Our board and advisory council include senior leaders with extensive experience in the financial services industry, social investment, policy-making and the voluntary sector.
As a trusted partner on impact investing to finance professionals, social purpose organisations and policy makers, we collaborate with other organisations in our field to work on specific and relevant projects. We run a series of research, education and advocacy programmes designed to bring about the market conditions to enable impact investing to flourish. We are part of a global network of National Advisory Boards, which together form the Global Steering Group for Impact Investment.
The Institute works with investors from across the spectrum of capital, including pension trustees, asset managers, investment advisors, as well as individual savers.
We receive funding from the UK government’s Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office’s Impact Programme and the City of London Corporation. We also receive support from a number of financial service firms as founding supporters. We are also grateful for the pro-bono support provided by several organisations and companies.
