Your money can change the world The Impact Investor: Lessons in Leadership and Strategy for Collaborative Capitalism offers precise details on what, exactly, impact investing entails, embodied in the experiences and best and proven practices of some of the world's most successful impact investors, across asset classes, geographies and areas of impact. The book discusses the parameters of impact investing in unprecedented detail and clarity, providing both context and tools to those eager to engage in the generational shift in the way finance and business is being approached in the new era of Collaborative Capitalism. The book presents a simple thesis with clarity and conviction: "Impact investing can be done successfully. This is what success looks like, and this is what it requires." With much-needed lessons for practitioners, the authors view impact investing as a harbinger of a new, more "multilingual" (cross-sector), transparent, and accountable form of economic leadership. The Impact Investor: Lessons in Leadership and Strategy for Collaborative Capitalism serves as a resource for a variety of players in finance and business, including: * Investors: It demonstrates not only the types of investments which can be profitable and impactful, but also details best practices that, with roots in impact investing, will increasingly play a role in undergirding the success of all investment strategies. * Wealth advisors/financial services professionals: With unprecedented detail on the innovative structures and strategies of impact investing funds, the book provides guidance to financial institutions on how to incorporate these investments in client portfolios. * Foundations: The book explores the many catalytic and innovative ways for for-profit and non-profit investors to partner, amplifying the potential social and environmental impacts of philanthropic spending and market-rate endowment investment. * Business students: By including strategies for making sound impact investments based on detailed case studies, it provides concrete lessons and explores the skills required to enhance prospects for success as a finance and business professional. * Policy makers: Reinforcing the urgency of creating a supportive and enabling environment for impact investing, the book demonstrates ways policy has already shaped the sector, and suggests new ways for policymakers to support it. * Corporate leaders: The book includes essential advice on the way business is and must be responding to a new generation of Millennial clients and customers, with unique insights into a form of value creation that is inherently more collaborative and outcomes-driven.

From the Back Cover:

CONCRETE LESSONS FOR IMPACT INVESTORS

"The Impact Investor is simply a must-read for those interested in the fast-growing field of impact investing and its emergence as a new and distinct approach to asset and wealth management. The book presents a definitive and indispensable guide for the seasoned entrepreneur, policymaker, investment professional, and MBA student alike."
--Matt Bannick, managing partner, Omidyar Network; cochair, US National Advisory Board on Impact Investing

"This book comes at a critical juncture in the development of impact investing. A growing set of global investors are excited about impact investing yet remain uncertain about performance and how to achieve it. Fortunately we can now learn practical lessons from those in the trenches. If you are about to invest your first $20 on vested.org or place a client's $10 million in impact products, you need to read this book."
--Antony Bugg-Levine, CEO, Nonprofit Finance Fund; coauthor, Impact Investing: Transforming How We Make Money While Making a Difference

"The authors--all longtime leaders in the impact investing space--provide valuable insights for a new class of investors. Their new book uses real-world examples from funds that meet investor expectations of return on capital and that support impact businesses that are using market-based solutions to solve some of our greatest social challenges."
--Jean Case, CEO, Case Foundation

"A 'must-have' for all interested in impact investing!"
--Annie Chen, Founder and Chair, RS Group, Hong Kong

"The Impact Investor takes the field of impact investing from theory to proven best practices, demonstrating not only that 'the train has left the station' but also that the destinations along the journey are proving quite attractive for both commercially and socially focused investors."
--Ron D. Cordes, executive cochairman, AssetMark

"This is a significant contribution to the development of impact investing. It moves the debate from well-meaning rhetoric to the challenges faced by real managers making real investment decisions to solve real problems."
--Nick O'Donohoe, CEO, Big Society Capital, London

"In these times of global transformation, aligning business and investment with our goals for positive social change is not merely a matter of preference, it is an absolute necessity. The Impact Investor introduces us to the innovators on the front lines already making change happen in markets across the globe."
--Darren Walker, president, Ford Foundation
