Description

Impact Investing is an emerging industry which entails investors actively placing capital in businesses and funds that generate social and/or environmental goods and at least return nominal principal to the investor. This project partnered with the IDB’s Multilateral Investment Fund (MIF) to examine the existing impact investment activities in Barbados, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago; the feasibility of increased activity in this area including the demand for and availability of such financing; and the role of government policy in creating an enabling environment for impact investment in the region.
