Scaling U.S. Community Investing: The Investor-Product Interface

The Global Impact Investing Network and the Carsey School of Public Policy October 19, 2015 Michael Swack and Eric Hangen

The GIIN, in partnership with the Carsey School of Public Policy, published Scaling U.S. Community Investing: The Investor-Product Interface, an in-depth landscape study of the U.S. Community Investing (USCI) field. The full report includes a detailed analysis of the major types of USCI products, parameters that different investors use to evaluate investment opportunities, and the barriers and opportunities to increasing investment.

We hope this research will open the door to more direct conversations between investors and USCI product managers to enable the development of products that meet both their needs—and, more importantly, the needs of those marginalized communities that U.S. Community Investing intends to serve.
