There is great potential to scale up U.S. community investing, according a report by the Global Impact Investing Network. Community investing is characterized by investments that seek to deliver social benefits to low-income or marginalized communities while also generating a financial return. The United States has a history of community investing with a diverse array of investors, including foundations, banks, family offices, and individual investors that are helping address social issues such as financial inclusion, affordable housing, renewable energy, and others. The MacArthur-supported report recommends broad-based marketing efforts to better engage investors, and the development of efficient investments products and platforms to more seamlessly enable capital flows.
