Impact Investing is a fast-growing field, with rapid growth in both total investment in impact funds and increasing diversification of fund types. Assets under management in impact funds grew by 18% compounded annually between 2013-2015. There is constant innovation in impact investing, with new types of impact funds and ventures in fields as diverse as healthcare, agriculture, education, climate adaptation and fisheries.
The Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN), of which Nautilus is a member, builds critical infrastructure and supports activities, education, and research that help accelerate the development of a coherent impact investing industry. The GIIN website provides an overview of the field of impact investing and tracks funds and their performance.
How We Help:
Nautilus Impact Investing does not currently invest in specific funds. Our main role is to assist fund managers and investors with impact strategy, measurement and evaluation.
We also work with nonprofits, government, research, community and tribal organizations to a) understand and engage with impact investing institutions, and b) develop projects that may be suitable for impact investments and/or blended investments, often involving grant or development assistance funding.
On occasion, Nautilus will recommend or directly engage in funding and promoting specific impact funds. Nautilus will also assist potential investors with conducting due diligence of proposed impact strategy and evaluate/benchmark the performance of a specific project or fund. Please reach out to our team if you are contemplating an impact investment opportunity and would like Nautilus to assist you with that assessment.
