The Financial Performance of Real Assets Impact Investments

The Financial Performance of Real Assets Impact Investments:
Introducing the Timber, Real Estate, and Infrastructure Impact Benchmarks

by the GIIN and Cambridge Associates

This study, which is part of a larger financial performance series, provides the first comprehensive analysis of the financial performance of 55 private real assets impact investment funds in three sectors: timber, real estate, and infrastructure. The report also launches the Real Assets Impact Investing Benchmarks, which will continue to track the financial performance of impact investing funds across the three sectors; Cambridge Associates will update performance data on the benchmarks quarterly. Encouragingly, the findings show that risk-adjusted market rate returns are achievable in impact investing, as evidenced by return distributions of similar funds with no environmental or social objectives; however, fund selection remains important.
