The best teachers are those who understand their topics so completely they can concentrate on the learners, not on the material. When it comes to the topics of impact trading and combined value, Antony Jed, and Bugg-Levine Emerson can be called good educators. Both men are intricately linked with this terminology – Emerson coined the word blended value.
Bugg-Levine either coined, or paid for the coining of the term, Impact Investing. The materials are realized by them, the concepts, the opportunity, and the tradeoffs are not surprising too. That they can make a book-length discussion of the financial innovations engaging and humanitarian, that is a present we can all be thankful for.
Readers of the blog are familiar with these terms. Many of you are smarter about these issues than I am. Bugg-Levine and Emerson present a past history, a modern look, and do some promotional forecasting about impact investing. They credit, appropriately and adequately, the years of technology from spiritual endowments to educators’ pension funds the thought of mixing investing with social profits. The simultaneous quest for financial comeback and cultural value lie in the center of the tools now known as impact investing and the outcomes now referred to as blended value. They also credit the “boundary” systems on either part of Impact Investing – philanthropy and commercial financing.
SoCAP 11, the fourth annual conference that has been almost synonymous with Impact Investing opens this week in San Francisco. The first SoCAP conference launched a month to your day following the 158-year-old Lehman Brothers investment bank went bankrupt. The disarray, stress, and anger from that scary time have elevated and ruined political careers, redrawn the global map of financial power bases, and given rise to bestselling award and books-winning films.
They’ve also opened wider the chance for new concepts of capitalism, new actions of income, and more common conversations about sustainable enterprise. Bugg-Levine and Emerson tell this entire story from the inside. Bugg-Levine led a grantmaking portfolio in the Rockefeller Foundation for several years that poured tens of huge amount of money into the infrastructure of impact investing. Emerson has staffed and consulted to many investor-side corporations over the full years.

For my purposes, the more interesting section of the written book will come in part two – exactly what will the near future keep? They address this in two ways – the practical and the predictive. They identify several sectors where impact investing opportunities are likely to grow and offer assistance for interested investors to pursue such opportunities.
Sadly, this section lacks a few of the critical reflection of the previous sections – especially in their positing of the assumed positive growth future for impact trading. What is their argument for this assured growth? Because just about everywhere you look there are failed claims, philanthropy can’t solve the issue of the failed state, and therefore we need market-based offerings. This continues as they address the critical issues of policies for impact investing. I am relieved, thankful, and intrigued by their policy proposals.
