Is there an alternative to the traditional model of investing for maximum profit and then donating to compensate for any damage?
Of course, donations make sense in certain situations; for example, during a natural disaster or in countries with reform-minded governments. In contrast, investments encourage recipients to be self-sufficient in a completely different way.
Impact investment is now all the rage. Often, it refers to investing using exclusion and ESG criteria. However, we want to go a step further and use our investments to make a positive and concrete contribution by active participation.
