State of Impact Investing in Norway
“The State of Impact Investing in Norway” survey was distributed to almost 200 different players in the Norwegian capital market, and received responses from 26 organizations that identify as impact investors. According to this first-of-its-kind report, the Norwegian impact investing market is sized at NOK 100 billion, with fund managers and state-owned investment companies accounting for 98% of the direct impact AUM in the survey sample.
The EVPA (European Venture Philanthropy Association), and the GSG estimate the European direct impact investment market at 80 billion euros (or over 900 billion NOK), based on close to 500 respondents. Given Norway’s population size and number of players, Norway stands out as a significant contributor to the European impact AUM.
