Impact Investing: A Framework for Policy Design and Analysis

Insight at Pacific Community Ventures & Initiative for Responsible Investing at Harvard University January 18, 2011

Impact Investing: A Framework for Policy Design and Analysis represents a framework for thinking about the role government policy can play in creating an enabling environment for impact investing. Written by InSight at Pacific Community Ventures and the Initiative for Responsible Investment at Harvard University with the support of the Rockefeller Foundation, the report answers the question, "How can policymakers, investors, and civil society better develop and analyze impact investing policies?"

This report presents three tools in order to lay the groundwork for future research: a model for locating the role of government in impact investing markets; a set of criteria that offer a practical starting point for the design and evaluation of policy; and sixteen case studies that provide detailed insight into a range of policies around the world.
