The future of impact investment in healthy ageing
Report of key findings and recommendations from a study commissioned by UKRI on reducing inequalities in healthy ageing.
This report explores how impact investing is evolving post-Covid 19 in the healthy ageing marketplace, and how best to deploy investment specifically for impact investors and social enterprises.
Nearly 200 organisations were surveyed for the report, spanning traditional investors, venture capital/private equity funds, impact investors, social enterprises and not-for-profit organisations, either actively engaged in or considering entering the marketplace for healthy ageing products and services.
The report argues that social investment funds- and, indeed, any sort of social investment in public markets - need to be driven by purpose and impact with profitability as a way of ensuring sustainability and resilience.
