SBCC Honored to be one of the 50 Best for the World funds setting the gold standard in the impact-investment movement.
Small Business Community Capital, SBCC is honored as a Best for the World Fund, which includes investment funds that have completed the rigorous GIIRS Rating, a third-party verification of the fund’s investment impact administered by the independent nonprofit B Lab. This comprehensive, comparable framework of impact measurement and management is critical to satisfying the market’s need to compare and benchmark a fund’s portfolio impact performance. Thus, Small Business Community Capital, SBCC has demonstrated leadership in the quest to achieve credibility for impact investing across asset classes.
GIIRS was launched five years ago to meet a core need to scale the impact-focused capital markets -- a credible, independent evaluation of the impact of companies and investment funds. Since its launch, GIIRS has rated over 90 investment funds and 2000 companies. GIIRS allows investment managers to measure and manage the total impact of their portfolio companies using the B Impact Assessment results and compares their performance against other funds .
The 50 GIIRS-rated Best for the World Funds account for more than 3 billion in capital that will be invested in companies across all areas of social and environmental impact.
