Sizing the Impact Investing Market
Although impact investing has become increasingly popular in recent years, with many major financial firms building impact investing practices, a clear estimate of the market’s size has been difficult to capture due to a lack of available data and the fast-evolving nature of the industry. The Global Impact Investing Network's (GIIN) new report, "Sizing the Impact Investing Market" offers an in-depth analysis of the current size and composition of the impact investing market. The GIIN estimates the current size of the global impact investing market to be $502 billion.
The report is based on the collation of assets under management data on more than 1,300 impact investors around the world, this research also underscores the diversity of the market, capturing data from many types of investors. These include asset managers, foundations, banks, development finance institutions, family offices, pension funds, insurance companies, and others.
