Big moves can be made when asset owners take a broad impact approach.
Having an impact means driving change, but that doesn’t mean that all impact investment strategies are driving positive change. We speak often about the semantics of impact and ESG, and as the sector expands, so too must the nuance of these terms be explored and refined.
Mary Delahunty knows this well. She is the founder and managing director at Seven Advisory, she works with a range of clients from large institutional investment managers, through to startups seeking investment. She knows impact, but she also knows where ESG fits when assessing risk.
In this piece, she explains her perceptions on how ESG and impact investing fit together, but also, she offers insight into the understanding (and misunderstanding) that she encounters in working with her clients.
