Impact Finance Barometer 2022: How Resilient is Impact Finance to Exogenous Shocks?

This publication presents key figures and trends in impact investing and financial inclusion around the world. Since its emergence in the early 2000s, the sector has enjoyed a strong and sustained momentum. According to data from the Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN) for the year 2020, the size of the impact investment market is estimated at around $715 billion. As we barely seem to recover from the COVID-19 crisis, this momentum seems far from over.

This year, as part of its special report, the Barometer examines the resilience of the impact finance sector to exogenous shocks. In addition, it looks for answers to these questions:

  1. What are the motivations driving this sector?
  2. How can we contribute to its proper definition and the measurement of its objectives?
  3. How can we ensure effective coordination of the various impact initiatives on a global scale?
