KL Felicitas -- Investing for Impact
This solution addresses Measure the impact of an impact investing portfolio. in Global for Impact Investors
Problem DescriptionThis review for the KL Foundation, and the parallel development of a suitable measurement framework to assess impact, has provided a model of transparency and methodology that, we hope, others will follow. We have shown not only that it is possible to measure impact, but we provide some guidance on how to go about it. In addition, we have shown that KLF’s approach—which involves measuring impact, openly sharing information, as well as being actively involved in impact advocacy—is much needed, and—if this report achieves its aim—will inspire others to replicate this type of review and, in the process, help to move the market forward. KLF, and we at NPC, have not by any means cracked all the issues in this emerging area, but we have shown that making progress is possible and is worthwhile. With this in mind, we provide some tools for other investors based on what we have developed for KLF, drawing, where possible, on existing frameworks in the field.
