GIIN report highlights post-exit investment requirements

The responsibilities of impact investors does not end with the exit of any particular investment, according to a new report published by the Global Impact Investing Network, GIIN.

Lasting Impact: The Need for Responsible Exits highlights different approaches taken by investors to “select, manage and ultimately exit their investments responsibly,” the report’s introduction notes.

Example case studies used include Adobe Capital’s exit from Natgas, Lok Capital’s exit from a microfinance company, Beartooth Capital’s exit from Montana ranchland and LeapFrog’s exit from Express Life.

GIIN, which is headquartered in New York, focuses on highlighting the opportunities for investors available via impact investing, while also working to reduce barriers to investors, to assist the direction of more capital to relevant projects. Further information is available at
