Harvard Business Review: Making Sense of the Many Kinds of Impact Investing
Bridges partner Brian Trelstad recently authored an article for the Harvard Business Review, where he outlined a framework to help potential investors think about how to invest for impact.
In ‘Making Sense of the Many Kinds of Impact Investing’, Brian explains how an individual investor can examine their own impact preferences by thinking about the five ‘P’s’: Place, Process, Planet, Product and Paradigms. He emphasises the importance of establishing the appropriate level of impact risk (i.e. the likelihood of their desired outcome being delivered).
