How it Works
Build your approach using a structure provided by Impact Frontiers and mutual support from peer investors.
“We found a lot of value in the cohort model. The sequence of workshops consistently challenged me to think ahead to the next step as we built our new impact management approach. I gained an amazing set of peers to go to for technical questions on impact ratings and how to build consensus with our internal team and board.”

We are often asked about our role, how we work, and what we offer. We’ve collected some of the top questions here:
- Which investments or loans create more or less impact and how do we know?
- How can we communicate the financial and impact performance of portfolios in a more integrated way?
- Which types of impact increase risk-adjusted financial returns; which require a financial concession; and which have no relationship with financial performance?
- Which investments or loans make more or less money?
- How can we use insights about impact and profitability to inform decision-making on individual investments, and to improve the impact and/or the financial performance of the portfolio as a whole?
- Which asset managers offer the greatest positive impact?
- How can we better understand asset managers’ impact and support them in improving it?
- How can impact inform capital allocations within and across asset classes?
- How can we aggregate and communicate the impact performance of multi-asset class portfolios?
- Stakeholder feedback
- Impact management for equity (gender, racial, other)
- Measuring and managing investor contribution
- Impact risk
- Navigating and implementing existing principles and standards
- Avoiding and mitigating negative impacts; ESG and screening-based approaches
- Additional themes selected based on investor interest
