The Impact Investing Tool is advanced cloud-software for fund managers and impact investors to evaluate, compare and select investing opportunities, monitor and measure performance of portfolio companies and aggregate the impacts of investees to your impact at portfolio level.
The calculation core is based on the state-of-the-art impact-weighted accounts framework, developed by the Impact Economy Foundation, the Harvard Business School, Rotterdam School of Management, Singapore Management University and Impact Institute. As such, the IIT enables the measurement and aggregation of very different types of social, environmental and economic impacts. This enables investors to make decisions based on aggregated impact metrics -such as impact returns- in a similar way as they are used to make impact based on financial metrics such as ROI.
Other unique features of the tool are the ability to tailor impact models to specific investments, provide data entry portals to investment analysts and investees, and features to provide complete transparency and traceability about calculations and input data.
Impact Institute also offers expert advise to implement the tool and develop calculation models as well as (digital) education to enable you to use the tool yourselves. Our main goal is to make it as simple and enjoyable for you to invest your funds where they have the best positive impact in the world in addition to the financial return you seek.
