Publisher's Summary

A leading investment professional explains the world of impact investing - investing in businesses and projects with a social and financial return - and shows what it takes to make sustainable, transformative change.

Impact investment - the support of social and environmental projects with a financial return - has become a hot topic on the global stage; poised to eclipse traditional aid by 10 times in the next decade. But the field is at a tipping point: Will impact investment empower millions of people worldwide, or will it replicate the same mistakes that have plagued both aid and finance?

Morgan Simon is an investment professional who works at the nexus of social finance and social justice. In Real Impact, she teaches us how to get it right, leveraging the world's resources to truly transform the economy. Over the past 17 years, Simon has influenced over $150 billion from endowments, families, and foundations. In Real Impact, Simon shares her experience as both investor and activist to offer clear strategies for investors, community leaders, and entrepreneurs alike. Real Impact is essential listening for anyone seeking real change in the world.

Missing the intro and first chapter...

The audiobook begins at Chapter 2, skipping the introduction and first chapter. There could be more missing as well, but won't know because I am now purchasing the book anyway so I can read the beginning.
