We’re pleased to support Australia’s first impact investing survey, by Impact Investing Australia – a not-for-profit organisation established in 2014 to develop the market for impact investing in Australia and deliver better outcomes for society.
In September 2015, Impact Investing Australia launched Australia’s first Impact Investor Survey.The first of its kind in Australia, the Survey will provide critical insights and data to help grow the opportunities for investments that deliver positive social or environmental impacts in addition to a financial return.
The Australian Impact Investor Survey aims to uncover current impact investing activity already happening across investor groups, as well as demonstrating the level of demand and areas of growth for impact investment.
It will also provide a stronger understanding of the motivations, intentions and barriers encountered by investors already participating in impact investing, as well as reveal the awareness and interest in impact investing from investors who are not currently making impact investments.
The Survey has now closed and results are being analysed.
In conversation with Nicole Richards at the Philanthropy Meets Parliament Summit, Daniel Lee shared his insights on topics including the role of philanthropy as a driver of systems change which addresses root causes of social challenges, the relationship between philanthropy and government and what the new political environment in the United States means for philanthropy.
