AAA backs Rockerfeller Foundation Endorsement of Impact investing

  1. 1. AAA backs Rockerfeller Foundation Endorsement of Impact investingA spokesperson from the Rockerfeller Foundation, Margot Brandenburg, has endorsed impact investing extremely eloquently in an article in the Huffington Post this week, claims alternative investment advocacy group AAA.Boston, MA, November 14, 2012 - A spokesperson from the Rockerfeller Foundation, MargotBrandenburg, has endorsed impact investing extremely eloquently in an article in the HuffingtonPost this week, claims alternative investment advocacy group Alternative Asset Analysis (AAA).Speaking following a convention about impact investing in Sao Paulo earlier this month, MsBrandenburg stated that investing in socially and environmentally responsible projects iscontinuing to attract attention and interest. This interest is coming from philanthropists andentrepreneurs, but also increasingly from regular investors and even institutional investors whomay not have even have considered alternative investments a few years back, claims AAA.In her Huffington Post article, Ms Brandenburg explains that this interest is stemming from agrowing feeling that ‘business as usual’ is simply not sustainable and often not ethical. “This hasbeen brought into the public consciousness since the economic crisis began and we all realizedthat there were some fundamental problems with the way the business world, and particularly thefinancial world, was operating,” explained AAA’s analysis partner, Anthony Johnson.AAA supports the sentiment that impact investors have the opportunity to help millions of peoplearound the world and contribute to local economies by helping people to set up businesses andwork themselves out of poverty. “These are long term solutions that can generate returns forinvestors in the West while helping those in developing nations to create a future for themselvesand their communities,” added Mr Johnson.AAA supports ethical alternative investment projects that help communities and environmentalcauses. An example is the plantations run by Greenwood Management in Brazil, which offerforeign investors the chance to buy up a section of sustainable plantation forest. The timbergrown in the forest is sold when it is mature and new seedlings are being planted all the time.“This form of managed forestry is a great alternative to using native forests in countries like Brazilwhere the ecology is so valuable in the fight against climate change,” added Mr Johnson.Contact:Anthony JohnsonAlternative Asset Analysis71 Commercial StBoston, MA 02109-1320617-939-9596info@alternativeassetanalysis.comhttp://www.alternativeassetanalysis.com ###
