Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN) announced the release of its first two 2023 GIINsight briefs which offer insights on impact investor characteristics, impact investing activity, allocation, and performance.
- Investors put 17% of their assets in energy, 13% in financial services, 9% in healthcare — and 61% of investors allocate at least a portion of their assets to food and agriculture.
- Almost all investors in the sample (96%) target at least one UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG), most commonly decent work and economic growth (SDG 8; 80% of investors), climate action (SDG 13; 74%) and gender equality (SDG 5; 71%).
- Among the sample of repeat respondents, investors grew their allocations to housing at a CAGR of 44% over a five-year period, the fastest-growing sector for impact AUM followed by information & communication technologies at a growth rate of 30%.
