History of Impact Investing
Jump to navigation Jump to search
- Founded in 1976, Calvert has a long history in responsible investing. In 1982, the Calvert Social Investment Fund (now Calvert Balanced Portfolio) was launched as the first mutual fund to oppose investing in South Africa's apartheid system.
- The founders of Calvert Investments (Now Calvert Research and Management), founded us as Calvert Social Investment Foundation in 1988 to offer investors more direct ways to invest in communities. We are a separate entity organized as a 501(c)(3) non-profit, and officially launched our portfolio and Community Investment Note in 1995. In November 2017 we renamed to Calvert Impact Capital to better reflect the work we do.
