Is a good project a good investment?

 

There is no doubt: Microfinance has left behind its niche status in the private investment market, and impact investment made with the intention to enact positive social and/or environmental change alongside a financial return has the potential to attract a growing number of mainstream investors.

However, investing in a way to create good for both our world and your wallet can be a tricky issue. If you don't want that what is meant to be a sophisticated investment ends up as a simple donation, you have to look far beyond the heart-warming potential social benefits your investment might generate. If you want your return to be more than the warm glow of doing a beneficent act, you have to carefully choose the project you invest in. But how ?

Given the lack of a real track record helping to understand the nature of these markets and products, this year's ALFI Microfinance and Impact Investing Conference will focus on the question if a good project is also a good investment.
