Firm Score

A measure of an entity’s impact authenticity, this figure may also be substituted with a GIIRS Rating

iPAR allows for comparisons across strategies and asset classes

Strategy Score

Impact Strategy Score

  • A measure of the impact outcome(s), both intended and achieved
  • The score is generated before capital is committed and dynamically updated to reflect ongoing progress (or lack thereof)
  • Each component of the impact strategy is rated separately, along four axes: Target, Scale, Innovation, and Reporting
  • These ratings are then input into an algorithm to produce a composite Impact Strategy Score

Execution Risk

  • A quantified evaluation of the obstacles that may impede the impact strategy
  • This score is also generated before capital is committed, and dynamically updated as risks are mitigated or overcome
  • Financial risks are important, but evaluated separately – thereby allowing analysis of impact creation for any capital deployment
  • Facilitates assessments of risk through an impact lens, a critical perspective that no other existing framework supports
Execution Risk
Firm Score

Firm Score

  • Designed to capture the impact DNA of the capital recipient and to frame that within their impact strategy
  • Provides investors with insight into the firm responsible for stewarding their capital
  • Based on the comprehensive GIIRS Rating
  • The Firm Score exists on a standalone basis, and is not an input for the Impact Strategy Score
