The report covers trends in regional impact investing with a focus on impact measurement, talent, and gender. It explores fundraising, deals, and exits, and takes a deep dive into impact investing in Brazil, Colombia, and Mexico.

Some Key Points: 

  • Seventy-eight firms reported that they have made impact investments in Latin America. the first impact investment was made in 1997
  • Twenty-eight impact investors headquartered in Latin America manage US $1.2 billion in assets under management (AUM)
  • The type of organizations making impact investments are diverse in size, organizational structure, the type of capital they have been able to raise, and their relative expectations for financial and impact return on investment
  • Respondents reported US$1.3 billion invested in 522 impact investing deals in 2014 and 2015
  • Respondents were optimistic about fundraising for 2016
  • Across Latin America, common challenges to entrepreneurial development include the lack of interested entrepreneurs with growth ambitions, a lack of early stage funding, and weak networks

The report is available for download in English, Spanish, and Portuguese
