Impact investing is going mainstream. So says The Economist. As evidence, the publication cites big-name investment firms that have launched “impact” divisions (BlackRock, Goldman Sachs, Bain Capital, TPG) or appeared at impact events (TIAA, PGGM, AXA). Not coincidentally, the magazine is sponsoring its own impact investing event next month. Still, impact investing represents only about $35 billion out of $70 trillion-plus in global investment assets.
