Will investors make Impact Investing the norm?

As Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors grow in importance, and more regulations come into play, CAMRADATA’s latest whitepaper on Impact Investing considers the challenges ahead and how investors apply Impact to their portfolios.

The whitepaper includes insights from firms including T. Rowe Price, Barnett Waddingham, Global Steering Group, Isio and Redington who attended a virtual roundtable hosted by CAMRADATA in March.

The report highlights that as ESG becomes standard for both corporates and their investors, Impact is now seen as the strident form of investing for those asset owners who want to lead on sustainable and social change.

For some types of asset owner such as charities and foundations, Impact fits naturally with their mission. However for others, such as pension funds and insurers, it can be challenging for them to fully understand the taxonomy of impact investing, and how to apply it to their portfolios.

Natasha Silva, Managing Director, Client Relations, CAMRADATA said, “ESG may be standard but it is still very much a work in progress. This is most evident in the European Union’s Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR)[i] where deadlines for implementation have been set before detailed guidance is given.

“Regulation such as SFDR will doubtless spur more Impact investing, but the question is how long it will take organisations to digest all the ESG requirements required to comply with SFDR’s Article 8 before tackling Article 9. Our panel considers the issues, opportunities and progress made in impact investing.

Further insight is also available in an article in the whitepaper from sponsor, T. Rowe Price entitled: T. Rowe Price Strategy Focus on Global Impact Credit’
