Impact investing AuM continues to expand, as growing numbers of institutional investors begin to allocate capital to create measurable social and environmental impact alongside financial returns.
Through our social finance and sustainable investment practice – HSF Impact – we are proud to advise some of the world's leading impact investors and social finance intermediaries, and to act for a variety of corporates, finance providers, insurers, asset managers and other financial market participants as they launch and scale their impact investment strategies.
