Impact Investing South Africa (IISA), in partnership with UCT GSB Bertha Centre and WITS CLEAR-AA, launched their latest report and action plan on Impact Measurement and Management in South Africa.
It is a practitioner-orientated piece of research drawing on opinions across the spectrum of the financial market and resulting in practical recommendations that are being taken forward by the IISA working group.
Impact Investing SA recently partnered with Old Mutual Investment Group (OMIG) to co-host their annual TOMORROW event. Over the years, the event has become an expression of OMIG’s mission of investing for a future that matters.
The event left us all feeling invigorated, and encouraged, by the knowledge that there is a collective effort, from South African private and public sectors, towards investing for a future that matters in our country and across our continent.
As announced at the event, our poll is still open, where you can vote for the SDG that you believe will make the most meaningful financial and social difference. If you’d like a copy of the TOMORROW publication, you can download it here.

The Bertha Centre and Impact Investing South Africa (IISA) hosted the first in a series of webinars, titled Applying impact investing strategies to the COVID- 19 crisis. The event focused on the relevance of public and private sector collaboration in COVID-19 emergency and recovery responses, highlighting the opportunities for private investors and philanthropic capital to contribute to recovery and stabilisation efforts. Our keynote speaker Nick Hurd, one of the UK’s longest serving Ministers for Civil Society and a key player in establishing the UK’s impact Investment market, shared his perspectives on the COVID-19 crisis. A panel of local changemakers featuring Dr Miriam Altman, National Planning Commission, Sibonakaliso Mavuka, Tshikululu, and Hamilton Ndlovu, ABSA, brought the conversation home. Moderated by Tanya van Lill, CEO of SAVCA, the panel interrogated the relevance of impact investing strategies in our collective response to the crisis.
