In our last post about impact investing
, defined as institutional investing aimed at social and environmental good, we predicted the practice would continue to grow in the coming years, propelled in part by the increasing number of millennials who are becoming investors. As a generation, millennials tend to align their values with their investment decisions, a principle we encourage and discussed in our post about younger investors
a few months ago.
As of 2012, about $3.74 trillion of total assets under management were impact investments, according to a study we referred to our September post.
