The African Investing for Impact Barometer

 
 

The African Investing for Impact Barometer is an annual publication launched by the Bertha Centre in 2013. It provides a snapshot of the growing investing for impact (IFI) market in Africa.

Associate Professor Stephanie Giamporcaro, the academic scholar behind the Barometer, believes that by collecting publicly available information on the industry, and by publishing these findings in a concise manner, the Barometer will help academics, researchers, investment professionals, journalists, civil society and policy-makers to connect investment strategies to the continents needs.


IFI: investing with the goal of achieving positive social and/or environmental as well as financial returns.
