Now in it's tenth year, the IA 50 has become one of the most recognized free databases of impact investment fund managers. This annually updated list is a gateway into the world of impact investing for investors and their financial advisors, offering an easy way to identify experienced and emerging impact fund managers. The IA 50 is intended to illustrate the breadth of impact fund managers operating today, though it is not a comprehensive list. Fund managers selected to the IA 50 demonstrate a wide range of impact investing activities across geographies, sectors and asset classes.
Announcing the IA 50 2021!
We’re pleased to share this year’s list of IA 50 2021 fund managers. This year’s list represents a diverse range of impact fund managers across three categories:
• IA 50 Fund Managers: Experienced impact fund managers with a minimum 3 year track record and $25M AUM.
• IA 50 Emerging Impact Managers: Newer impact fund managers to watch that demonstrate future potential to create meaningful impact. Criteria such as minimum track record or minimum assets under
management may not be applicable.
• New for 2021: IA 50 Emeritus Managers: Spotlighting impact fund managers who have achieved IA 50 recognition for a minimum of 5 years.
The IA 50 is not an index or investable platform and does not constitute an offering or recommend specific products. It is not a replacement for due diligence. It is an information resource to begin research on the impact investing sector.
The ImpactAssets 50 is focused on private debt and equity fund managers to provide a centralized source of information that is not publicly available elsewhere. However, investing for impact can be done across many asset classes and we encourage investors to make use of other resources (US SIF, The GIIN) in evaluating sustainable, response, impact investing options.
