Social investing is taking off in the US, claims AAA

A growing number of savvy investors are putting their cash into social investment bonds and funds that not only help vulnerable people to make more of the lives, but also make the investors money, according to AAA.

Boston, MA, August 09, 2012 - A growing number of savvy investors are putting their cash into social investment bonds and funds that not only help vulnerable people to make more of the lives, but also make the investors money, according to Alternative Asset Analysis.

AAA, an alternative investment advocacy group, claims that a number of recent articles in high-profile publications, such as have underlined the growing popularity of social impact investing in the US. Although impact investing is not a new thing, some may think it only tends to focus on helping those in developing countries However, this is not so and a large number of bonds and funds are popping up in US cities aimed at helping locals get back on their feet.

The Calvert Social Investment Foundation is one such fund, which has loaned money to a range of good causes, such as Portland, Oregon-based central City Concern. This non-profit organization helps locals afflicted by poverty, homelessness and addiction to learn skills and start businesses.

The investment part of the deal takes place when the loans made by the Calvert foundation, and other similar funds, are packaged into bonds, which are then sold to investors who might be looking to invest in social projects.

AAA supports these kinds of projects, claiming that they can make a significant difference to people all over the world if they are managed correctly and there is enough interest. “A growing number of wealthy individual are becoming interested in philanthropy” stated AAA’s analysis partner, Anthony Johnson. “Following the global economic crisis, making a quick buck has become less important than helping their fellow man, it seems.”

AAA supports a range of alternative investments, with the emphasis on forestry research through sustainable plantations run by firms like Greenwood Management.
