Editorial Reviews

Review

"Morgan Simon has made a significant contribution with the very big idea that we can change the world by changing how we all relate to money. And lucky for us, Simon is as entertaining in her writing as she is brilliant in her concepts."―Van Jones, CNN

"Impact investing is a subject that deserves in-depth, powerful scrutiny.
Real Impact offers much of that, and will give readers an introduction into understanding where this kind of work can bring hopeful change and where it can't. Timely!"―Bill McKibben, author of Deep Economy

"Where we invest speaks to our values as a country that prioritizes our collective social welfare. Morgan Simon's innovative investment approach ensures money can serve as a force for good, for everyone."―
Congressman Keith Ellison, member of the House Financial Services Committee and co-Chair, Congressional Progressive Caucus

"
Real Impact is a unique and valuable teaching tool. Morgan Simon's expertise in the field is unparalleled, and brilliantly shared through this book."―Vikram Gandhi, Senior Lecturer, Harvard Business School; former Vice-Chairman of Investment Banking, Credit Suisse

"
Real Impact is a gift to the academic community. I know of no other resource available with such a balance of thought-provoking investment philosophy and practical advice--reflecting the depth of Morgan Simon's expertise and experience in impact investment."―Heidi Krauel Patel, Lecturer in Management, Graduate School of Businessat Stanford University

"A critical cautionary tale--how do we scale social impact investment without leaving anyone behind? Morgan Simon is a master practitioner at inclusive investment; read
Real Impact to learn from her compelling example."―Ben Jealous, Partner,Kapor Capital and former President, NAACP

"To drive significant social and environmental progress around the world, investors need to understand how to structure and deliver capital in a way that works for high-impact enterprises.
Real Impact highlights the complicated trade-offs they will face along the risk-return spectrum and offers a blueprint for market growth. It helps fill the knowledge gap between optimism and execution."―Debra D. Schwartz, Managing Director of Impact Investments, MacArthur Foundation

"Over 1,700 asset owners around the world, from pension funds to insurance companies and sovereign wealth funds, have become signatories to the UNPRI, as its becomes increasingly clear that social and environmental trends can create financial opportunities. Investors now have the capacity to help solve the world's problems and deliver strong returns for their beneficiaries and clients. Morgan Simon is a global leader in impact investing, and this book offers critical lessons for those interested in being on the cutting edge of this exciting new field."―
Dr. James Gifford, Founder and former Executive Director, United Nations Principles on Responsible Investment; Senior Impact Investment Strategist, UBS

"Clear-eyed, explicit, and tinged with just the right amount of outrage, this is a clarion call that the world...needs to hear."-
Publishers Weekly



"A clear-eyed case for socially conscious investment, of much interest to those who want their dollars to do good." -
Kirkus Reviews



"Readers interested in social and economic justice, climate change, housing, gender equality, and other pertinent topics will be compelled by Simon's exploration of impact investment as a creative way to challenge social problems in global and local contexts."
- Booklist
