Beyond the Margin: Redirecting Asia's Capitalism

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, August 25, 2015
Updated: Tuesday, June 16, 2015

Asia’s economic growth of the last few decades has lifted hundreds of millions of people out of poverty, and improved the lives of billions more. However, continuing down the path that has spurred economic development to date – driven by investment and profit-maximisation – can only end in environmental and social calamity. Persistent pollution and unfettered resource consumption, paired with growing income inequality and multi-dimensional poverty, will reverse the region’s growth achievements and decrease social stability.

A key solution to the quandaries of stimulating development and creating sustainable livelihoods can be found in “impact investing” – the deployment of private capital to create positive impact that goes beyond financial returns alone.

this report explores the role that impact investing can play in the developing countries of the Asia-Pacific. It examines its potential market, as well as the challenges that must be overcome in order for its key benefits to be realised.

China Crowd-funding Report

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, August 11, 2015
Updated: Tuesday, June 9, 2015

China’s open door policy has transformed the country’s economy, but at a social and environmental cost. Chinese Social and Environmental (SE) Small and Growing Businesses (SGBs) can help China face these challenges through economic development, poverty alleviation, and environmental benefits. Yet Chinese SE SGBs are limited by their lack of finance. Crowdfunding, soliciting small amounts of funding from many people primarily via the internet, provides an alternative to traditional forms of finance. Moreover, it can act as a form of impact investing when targeted towards Chinese SE SGBs, intentionally producing social and environmental (SE) benefits while also increasing the awareness and credibility of the nascent impact investing industry.
