Francois Botha, founder of Simple, an international strategy consultancy based in Denmark, writes what 1200 of the world's leading impact investors are focusing on: non-financial risks and objectives through a measurable approach.

Botha shares that the view that non-financial risks and objectives can no longer be ignored was one shared by many of the speakers and panelists at the 10th annual Global Impact Investing Network Forum in Amsterdam.

Botha also indicates that the desire for various other areas of non-financial risk has also been evolving and various developments in finance structure, like blended finance, have led to increased security and confidence.

He points out that the desired or expected outcome needs to be clearly defined, measured and reported on as part of the overall investment's reporting. Botha writes that metrics change and with every generation, a new context will shape behaviors and consumption.
