Consolidated Impact is the Goal of iPAR Reporting for Investors and Fund Managers

“Capital markets are an optimization engine,” says Matthew Weatherley-White. “The question is: to what end do we want to optimize?”

iPAR reflects an investment’s intents and risks through separate Impact Strategy and Execution Risk scores, which can be updated with new data from investees. The goal is an ongoing, easy-to-understand dashboard of impact performance and risk.

By separating out only the impact criteria from financial return expectations, the two scores are intended to apply across asset classes and investment structure. That also makes it possible to evaluate the impact of commercial and philanthropic investments equally – one of the thornier apples and oranges comparisons.
