Sizing the Impact Investing Market
by Abhilash Mudaliar and Hannah Dithrich

This white paper presents the first rigorous analysis and estimate of the size of the impact investing market. It estimates that over 1,340 organizations currently manage USD 502 billion in impact investing assets worldwide. This research also underscores the diversity of the market, capturing data from many types of investors — from family offices to foundations to banks to pension funds — who are based in every region of the world and investing worldwide. Over 800 asset managers account for about 50% of industry assets under management, while 31 development finance institutions (DFIs) manage just over a quarter of total industry assets.

And the market continues to grow rapidly, with new investors entering to establish impact investing practices and to allocate additional capital to positive impact.
