Impact investment is any investment made with the intent to generate positive, measurable social and environmental impact, alongside a financial return. The global impact investment industry, totaling USD 715 billion, has grown in depth and sophistication over the last decade. As countries worldwide lean towards a values-oriented approach, Bangladesh has been shaping its own trajectory with deep intentionality and contextualization. This report analyzes the current policy landscape as regards impact investment in Bangladesh, complemented by a series of primary interviews with three key stakeholder groups (impact entrepreneurs, impact investors, and ecosystem builders). It identifies the strengths, opportunities, weaknesses, and threats inherent in this ecosystem (SWOT) to devise a blueprint for the development of the proposed Bangladesh Impact Investment Strategies and Action Plan (BIISAP). Policy Landscape Analysis: Impact Investing in Bangladesh was produced by the National Advisory Board (NAB) for Impact Investment in Bangladesh. LightCastle Partners was commissioned to conduct the research and produce this report. This study was sponsored by United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP) and British Council; supported by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and BUILD Bangladesh.
