This chapter presents the latest results of the African Investing for Impact Barometer (AIFIB) research project. This research provides insights on market trends on investing for impact investment strategies in Southern Africa, West Africa and East Africa. These investment strategies that are usually classified under the umbrella of sustainable and/or responsible investing (SRI) and amounting for environmental, social and governance (ESG) integration, investor engagement, screening, sustainability themed investment and impact investing have blossomed in the past 20 years in Europe North America. Conversely, the AIFIB research project shows the African continent’s vitality and potential for these new investment practices from 2013 onwards. In addition, through its barometer tool, the AIFIB research project helps in providing some answers to the complex question of how to measure the positive impact of these investment strategies on the well-being of society.
