Lasting Impact: The Need for Responsible Exits demonstrates why and how investors attempt to safeguard the continuity of their investments’ impact beyond exit. The report draws on insights from interviews with over 30 investors and entrepreneurs and outlines practical approaches to achieving responsible exits. Four case studies provide in-depth examples of responsible exits from impact investments.
The report reveals investors’ strategies to strengthen their ability to meet liquidity objectives and ensure the long-term impact of their investments. These approaches span the lifecycle of the investment, including: pre-investment, at the time of investment, during the investment, and at the time of exit.
