Impact Investing

Bringing right-sized rigor to investors
who seek social impact

We help clients decide if and how impact investing fits into their strategy. For those where it does, we develop fund impact strategies, support impact thesis development, and embed impact assessment through diligence, underwriting, and ownership.

Focused on Rigor and Evidence

Some of the greatest social advances of the past century involved significant private capital working alongside government and philanthropic funds. We help asset owners and managers who seek similar social returns and want more rigorous and evidence-based ways to invest for that impact.

Two Sides of the Impact Investing Equation

Expected financial returns for impact investors can range from market rate to partial loss of capital. As for impact, approaches can range from passive to intentional and evidence-based. Bridgespan focuses mainly on intentional and evidence-based approaches to impact.
