Impact Investments are investments in companies, organisations and funds with the aim of achieving social and ecological benefits in addition to financial returns. Impact investments can be made in markets of industrialised and developing countries and, depending on the circumstances, achieve both below-average and market returns. Impact investments are often projectspecific and differ from the philanthropy approach in that investors retain ownership of the assets and expect positive financial returns. Impact investment includes microfinance, community investing, social entrepreneurship funds and French funds solidaires.
