In a recent article in Alliance magazine, Suzanne Biegel discusses the potential of impact investing with a gender lens. In a thorough overview of the concept, she presents at least three ways investors might consider their gender impact: 1. Through increasing access to capital for women entrepreneurs and businesses. 2. Investing in companies that increase women’s wealth. 3. Investing in companies that directly improve the welfare of women and girls.
She additionally suggests multiple opportunities to promote women’s participation in, and benefit from, social-values investing.
