Healthy Returns: An Impact Investor's Guide to Investing in Health Equity and Outcomes

Jordana Pleat CapShift

Health enables individuals to thrive and societies to function. From the everyday task of ensuring our bodies get what they need to once-in-a-generation events like Covid that shut down every aspect of our global society – health plays a huge role in all sectors. The global healthcare industry is worth upwards of $12 trillion and the global impact investing market reached over $1 trillion, but health and health equity investors remain just a small fraction of the impact investing market. For an individual interested in putting their private capital to work towards solutions, investing with a health lens can often feel like an overwhelming sea of need or an echo chamber, without a clear indication of where private capital can best support. Exploring data from nearly 1,000 impact investing opportunities, there is no shortage of opportunities for impact investors to advance health equity and outcomes. The opportunity set is vast, from supporting the direct provision of care, catalyzing new pockets of innovation to solve critical needs, and aiding prevention efforts guided by social determinants of health.
Leveraging insights from our newly launched framework for impact investors interested in the continuum of health equity and outcomes, CapShift and industry experts will meet at the intersection of health equity and impact investing. We will discuss on how impact investors have built health focused impact investing portfolios across the risk-return spectrum, from financial-first to those prioritizing impact on issues of health equity and justice. Whether you are an experienced health funder, or are curious about how your existing strategy can improve health outcomes for the communities you serve, explore the practitioner’s view on a new framework to help impact investors realize their health-related impact goals.
