How Impact Investing Impacts Investment Choices (5 min read)

Impact investing is a type of thematic investing style where you have a particular focus on an industry or social trend. The focus for impact investing is to aim for a specific positive impact in the world while achieving competitive financial returns. It can be a selection of companies that promote positive changes like reducing human carbon emission, mitigating climate change, or reducing water consumption. It can also be avoiding companies that are considered negative like alcohol, tobacco, or gambling. It is very similar to environmental, social and governance (ESG) investing but ESG has a stronger focus on generating superior returns than creating desirable changes. It can be complicated and time consuming to research companies to execute this investing style so many investors tend to use mutual funds or ETFs designed to follow specific impact investing strategies.
