Impact Investing Trends: Evidence of a Growing Industry (2016) is the first analysis produced by the GIIN on global impact investment trends, using data from the 2013-2015 annual survey, with both quantitative and qualitative insights.

- Growth of the assets under management (AUM) by 18% annually from 2013 alto2015
- Impact Investors seem satisfied when it comes to social impact and financial performance
- Respondents increasingly raised their commitments, reaching $9.1 billion in 2015, from 7.1 in 2013
