Impact Investing in Africa’s Growth Markets
Impact investments are investments made with the intention to generate positive, measurable social and environmental impact – alongside a financial return. Impact investments can be made in both emerging and developed markets, and target a range of returns from below market to market rate, depending on investors’ strategic goals (African Strategic-Ventures (ASV) & GIIN, 2020 & 2021).
The growing impact investment market provides capital to address the world’s most pressing challenges in sectors such as sustainable agriculture, renewable energy, conservation, microfinance, and affordable and accessible basic services including housing, healthcare, and education (African Strategic-Ventures (ASV) & GIIN, 2020 & 2021).
In emerging African Growth Markets, the average IRR (Internal Rate of Return) of Impact Investments is pegged at approximately 15%. This positive development further highlights the underlying vital importance and benefits of Impact Investing as a whole.
