What is it about?
KBF has carried out an update of the 2016-2017 study on Belgian impact investing for development, incorporating the facts and figures for 2018-2019. The aim of this study is twofold: on the one hand, to raise awareness of Belgian impact investing for development among decision-makers and the general public, and, on the other hand, to trigger meaningful debate on the current situation and the prospects of the sector.
The 2018-2019 update indicates that the Belgian landscape of impact investors for development remains diverse, encompassing both relatively small-scale and large investors, private investors and public institutions, operating under various legal forms. Thirteen organizations participated in the study, representing the breadth of the domestic sector.
By surveying 13 identified investors, the survey outlines the characteristics, trends and challenges of this sector. The good news is that players are working together and plan to do so more in the future, and some newcomers are joining the Belgian pioneers.
The aim is to repeat this study every two years.
