4 Services for Responsible Investors
Impact46 supports investors’ capacity to source investments that have a positive social and environmental impact. We do so by helping you develop the tools and criteria to ‘filter’ leads from a social impact perspective. We also support sourcing by performing targeted thematic and geographic Ecosystem Researches that help identify potential investees and/or sourcing partners.
Impact46 supports responsible investors in the development of processes and tools that add a ‘social lens’ to the investment process. We help define criteria to be utilized during the due diligence of potential investees to assess their effective capacity to deliver social impact. Our approach is pragmatic: beyond traditional ‘ESG checklists’, we develop tools that are tailored to the size and specific needs of the investor. If useful, we can join – as advisors – your investment committee(s) and contribute our experience to your investment decisions.
Portfolio Management and Impact monitoring.
We help you develop systems and tools to constantly monitor the social impact of your portfolio. This includes helping you define the process and criteria to be used for each of your investees and the way data from your portfolio can be effectively aggregated in a dashboard that supports your decisions and provides material for internal and external communication on your investments’ social impact.
