Invest for Impact

Expanding the Social Impact Marketplace

Leave a comment

A growing number of investors are adding a social impact dimension to their investment strategies.  These investors consciously seek to invest in companies that share their values to address societal and environmental issues. They are seeking investment opportunities that may provide a healthy financial return and help build a sustainable society.

But as impact investing scales, and a growing number of investors enter the space, it is also changing the face of capital markets.  Metrics, infrastructure, and appropriate financial products don’t fit neatly within existing public market structures, and this is driving the need for marketplaces focused on social investments.

Forbes recently highlighted the leading social impact marketplaces, and recognized Mission Markets role as one of the leaders in building impact investing infrastructure.  Mission Markets is proud to be recognized as an early leader in providing access to social impact investments. We offer an electronic marketplace aligned with the financial infrastructure and broker expertise required to complete transactions.  

The new infusion of private capital is enabling organizations to address social challenges that once seemed insurmountable.  In doing so, it’s unleashing the creativity and technology of today’s generation to bring focus and innovation to solve some of the world’s most pressing problems. We look forward to enhancing our marketplace to broaden the reach of impact investing.
