ImpactAlpha’s Risk and Rewards takes a look at this industry in its infancy, and this emerging area which is no stranger to dilemmas and debates. On one side are the critics who say that it will never produce the real returns needed to invoke change, and on the other are proponents who argue this is a sure bet that can help transform the world. We frame the debate, and examine the work and progress of impact investing, taking a deep look at the risks and rewards, as well as the wins and losses of companies and portfolios.
