From time to time, the Ross Trust has engaged in impact investing aligned with our current strategy and funding priorities.
Impact Investing Australia describes impact investment as ‘investments made into organisations, projects or funds with the intention of generating measurable social and environmental outcomes, alongside a financial return.’
One of the features of these investments is the ability to bring together funding organisations across sectors, expanding the pool of resources available to help achieve start up-funds, with a commitment to achieving sustainable outcomes addressing social and environmental issues. The approach often allows greater latitude for taking risks than more traditional sources of finance and leads to innovative solutions to long-term challenges.
The Ross Trust is currently invested in three impact investing initiatives which focus on affordable housing, environmental conservation and educational engagement. If you would like to know more about our approach to potential investments in alignment with our granting strategy, please contact our CEO by email: email@example.com
