SOCIAL IMPACT INVESTING
“If you’re going to create real impact, it has to be done with the same focus and
level of intensity as your business.” - Scot Tatelman, STATE
"Social Impact Investments are made into companies, organizations, and funds with the intention to generate a measurable, beneficial social or environmental impact alongside a financial return". Impact investing occurs across asset classes; for example, private equity/venture capital, debt, and fixed income.
