2023 twelfth edition of IA 50 features a record number of private impact fund managers delivering social and environmental impact as well as financial returns.
BETHSEDA, MD, USA, March 14, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — ImpactAssets announced today that it has released the ImpactAssets 50 2023 (IA 50), a free publicly available, searchable database of impact investment fund managers for impact investors, family offices, corporations, foundations and institutional investors.
In its twelfth year, the IA 50 continues to raise awareness of impact fund managers across impact areas, maturity, and geography, serving as a basis for deepening understanding of the field.
Una Terra Venture Capital Growth Impact Fund was selected as part of the IA50 by IA independent Review Committee, comprised of a diverse mix of industry veterans, expert practitioners, and impact champions (see name list below).
Luca Zerbini, CEO and Managing Director of UnaTerra said: “We are extremely happy of having been selected as part of the IA50 list. Impact Assets 50 will provide further visibility to our impact investing work, highlighting the differentiated path we have taken in terms of a) significant operating support to growth scale ups in the circular economy; b) clear targets on climate change, biodiversity loss and gender lens investing; and c) our deep commitment by putting at stake half of the carry based on achieving these impact objectives (with third party verification) without compromising on superior financial results. Our entire team is excited and energized by the IA50 showcase this year”.
“This year’s IA 50 showcase is a watershed, as the industry continues to allocate more investable assets into social and environmental solutions with both time-tested strategies and creative, new approaches,” said Jed Emerson, ImpactAssets Senior Fellow, IA 50 Review Committee Chair and Chief Impact Officer at AlTi Global. “Established funds continue to impress, while new funds are bringing fresh approaches and insights that move the needle in critical areas through impact investing.”
What makes the IA 50 so special is its independent Review Committee, comprised of a diverse mix of industry veterans, expert practitioners and impact champions” said Margret Trilli, CEO and Chief Investment Officer at ImpactAssets. “Throughout the IA 50’s 12-year tenure, we have honed a rigorous application, analysis and scoring process to support the Review Committee in selecting interesting fund managers for the IA 50 directory. In doing so, the IA 50 has become a staple resource for investors to source impact investment ideas to consider for their own due diligence.”
In addition to Jed Emerson, the ImpactAssets IA 50 Review Committee is comprised of some of the leading thinkers and doers in impact investing— people who built the industry and are leading investors, managers and practitioners.
