The term “Impact investing” was created by the Rockefeller Foundation in 2008 to define how it saw people and corporations focusing their investments to create social change in the areas of public policy. In 2020, impact investments received close to a 50% increase in funds moving from traditional allocations of mutual funds and ETFs towards funds that had a value proposition that a consumer could identify with.
