Trends and Challenges of Impact Investing in Bangladesh

Fahmida Ahmed

Abstract


Impact investing has fundamentally changed the way enterprises engage in sustainable development. The traditional divide between profit enterprises seeking gain and non-profit organizations seeking social good is obscure as hybrid organizations bring profit-generating operations and social missions together. This contribution focuses on the state of impact investing in Bangladesh and secondary data discusses about trends and challenges of impact investing in Bangladesh. Actively seeking investment yield on both a financial and social return, impact investors are taking notions of socially responsible investment one step further with environmental impact.
