Jean Case recently joined Barron’s Level Up series for a conversation with senior writer Abby Schultz on the power of impact investing and how Next Gen investors can align their investments with their values.

We’ve compiled some top takeaways below and encourage you to check out the full video!

  • All investing has an impact. The question is, what kind of impact are you having? 

  • Many define impact investing as investments that intentionally generate social and financial returns. There are three things Jean thinks about as core to the definition: Intentionality, Transparency, and Measurement.

  • The past decade of growth in the impact investing movement has been impressive. More investors, entrepreneurs, corporations, foundations, and nonprofits are investing with the intention of generating both financial and social returns than ever before. 

  • One of the best ways to ensure impact investing continues to grow and bring a wider range of investors into the sector is to break down barriers to entry and to work together to change the norms around transparency and disclosure.
