The protocol that has been developed provides a solid base towards measuring the IMM of WMPF and enabling the achievement of an IMM of at least 2. Wire Group gains clarity in terms of the necessary requirements, resources, roles and responsibilities around the assessment of impact. In addition to that, the protocol can be used to give critical information to investors and provide transparency on how impact returns are calculated, which sets expectations and helps in conversations with funds. Finally, the protocol provides a methodology against which a validation or audit procedure could be compared. As a next step, the protocol provides a detailed methodology that can be put into testing with a selection of funds within the portfolio of WPMF. This will help to further tailor the approach (where applicable) and roll out its implementation to the full portfolio of WPMF.
