Integrating Social Impact With Financial Performance: Catherine Dun Rappaport Co-Authors Article in Stanford Social Innovation Review

May 15th, 2020

Since 2018, Catherine Dun Rappaport, BlueHub’s VP of Learning and Impact Measurement, has been a member of the Impact Frontiers Collaboration, a group of investment professionals dedicated to developing new ways to integrate impact considerations alongside financial metrics in investment decisions.

The Impact Frontiers Collaboration today published a Stanford Social Innovation Review article presenting four steps to help investors allocate capital to achieve financial, social, and environmental goals.

“BlueHub Loan Fund is committed to financing projects that deliver both strong impact and financial returns. I am proud of, though not surprised by, the rigor with which we hold ourselves accountable for achieving those goals.  The measurement methodologies we developed in partnership with Impact Frontiers help us to do that work even better,” said Dun Rappaport. “It’s been an honor to partner with other leading impact experts to share our knowledge, and to refine our own measurement tools and strategies. In this time of global crisis, it’s more important than ever for financial institutions to understand and maximize the social returns on their investments.”
