System-Level Investing:

What is it, and How Does it Differ From or Reinforce Sustainable and Impact Investing?

System-level investing has emerged in recent years as a holistic approach to coupling investment and non-investment activities needed to mitigate systemic risks affecting entire portfolios, like climate change. Examples of these activities include building norms and consensus, influencing policy, and generating new types of opportunities.

In this Compass Series, we talked to the architect of the system-level investing movement, The Investment Integration Project (TIIP). We explored the definition and tools associated with system-level investing and dug deeper into what the approach means in practice, and how it complements Sustainable and Impact Investing.
