What is Impact Investment?

Since the term ‘Impact investing’ was formally coined in 2007, the industry has grown at a rapid pace. The Global Impact Investing Network (“GIIN”) estimates the current size of the global impact investment market to be $502 billion.

Impact investing challenges the long-held views that social and environmental issues should be addressed only by philanthropic donations, and that market investments should focus exclusively on achieving financial returns. Through Impact Investing, investors seek to generate both a financial return and a positive, measurable social and environmental impact to society. In this way, Impact investing is the intentional marriage of profit and values.

The Triple Point Impact EIS is a managed service, targeting significant capital growth by investing in fast-growing, innovative companies that have a positive impact on society and which qualify for EIS tax reliefs.

Since 2004 Triple Point has arranged over £600m of investment capital for the SME sector, including over £400m provided to 130 companies qualifying for EIS and VCT tax reliefs. Over £240m has been successfully returned to our EIS and VCT investors to date.
