Impact Investing in New Zealand
The New Zealand National Advisory Board (NZNAB) provides leadership and direction for the growth of the impact investment market in NZ, enabling the impact investing industry in NZ to effectively engage at a global level.
In Aotearoa New Zealand, the market was estimated to be NZ$100m but due to a lack of aggregated market data, this figure doesn’t reflect the true extent of activity.
An analysis of the relative size of the New Zealand economy, charity sector and capital markets suggests a potential size for impact investments of around NZ$5 Billion.
New Zealanders have among the highest uptakes of Responsible Investment products in the world, the volume of investment having grown from $79 Billion in 2016 to $183.4 Billion by the end of 2017.
