Alpha Impact Advisors offers clients a specialized approach to impact investing, with expertise in both fixed income investing and social impact research and measurement. With over 20 years of experience in impact investing, Barbara VanScoy is uniquely qualified to analyze portfolios and strategies and recommend ways to optimize financial and social returns. She has extensive expertise in analyzing investments across a holistic set of impact factors beyond traditional risk and return measures which can mitigate risk, enhance security selection, and lower portfolio volatility, aiding in the risk-adjusted profile of portfolios.
Impact investing demands sustainable, effective solutions for social change. Responsible investing encourages a longer term approach to value creation. Financial data is no longer sufficient to fully assess an investment. It is necessary to identify and consider non-financial qualitative criteria to determine success. ESG factors into the decision-making process.
Alpha Impact Advisors utilizes financial innovation that is scalable and replicable to produce investment solutions that generate an appropriate risk-adjusted return while driving social and economic change for people and places underserved by traditional capital markets.
Alpha Impact Advisors is a woman-owned small business.
