Impact investor and Smeal alum launches IMPACTIVATE
Impact Investing is an $8 trillion dollar industry in the U.S. (US SIF, 2016). I got to talk this week with Casey Clark, 2007 Smeal Finance grad, who helped to create the impact investing function within Glenmede which has over $40 billion of assets under management. He told me about an interesting web-resource, impactivate, an information clearinghouse for those interested the "expression of their values through their investments."
