2015 Australian Impact Investor Survey

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.
