The lack of compelling quantitative and qualitative data points, case studies, and meaningful impact stories have been cited as the primary reasons impact investors, traditional investors and intermediaries stay on the sidelines. Toniic’s T100 Project contributes to a growing body of work from the field of impact investing aimed at solving these challenges. By embarking on this project Toniic seeks to:
- Inspire and enable others to explore and accelerate their impact investing journeys;
- Demonstrate to financial advisory firms and product providers that there is a significant and growing market for impact products and services; and
- Empower the research community with access to data to start exploring systemic issues such as sustainable risk factors, the availability and accessibility of specific impact themes within each asset class, and how best to incorporate externality pricing into security valuation and analysis.
