The Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN) Presents: #GIINRoadmap

The Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN) released its Roadmap for the Future of Impact Investing: Reshaping Financial Markets. Commenced at the ten-year anniversary of the coining of the term impact investing, the Roadmap assesses industry progress to date, presents a vision for the financial markets, and outlines 18 specific actions needed to exponentially enhance the scale and effectiveness of impact investing across the world. The GIIN is the leading organization dedicated to increasing the scale and effectiveness of impact investing as well as transparency, credibility, and consistency in impact performance reporting.

TriLinc Global, LLC (“TriLinc”) is a founding member of the GIIN and actively supports the GIIN’s efforts to unlock significant private investment capital to help solve pressing global challenges.

“TriLinc is a founding member of the GIIN, and we have always shared the vision and dedication to improve the world through investing,” said Gloria Nelund, Founder and CEO at TriLinc Global, LLC. “Our management team are former senior executives of global banks and investment firms, with significant experience in impact investing. We are committed to contributing thought capital, as well as to providing investors with access to products that pursue market-rate returns alongside meaningful socioeconomic and environment impact.”

The Roadmap was developed with inputs from 350 individuals, including TriLinc’s Managing Partner, Joan Trant, who participated in the Senior-level Consultation to identify and refine the bold actions needed to integrate the broader financial markets into impact investing to achieve a better form of capitalism.

 “As a fund sponsor, at TriLinc it is our goal to harness the power of the capital markets to make a difference in communities across the globe,” said Joan Trant, Managing Partner at TriLinc . “We believe the pursuit of meaningful financial return and positive social and economic impact are mutually reinforcing, and industry research increasingly supports our position that a disciplined investment process that incorporates environmental, social, and governance screening and impact metrics can enhance risk-adjusted returns through identifying and mitigating potential risks.”
