Given the growing interest in impact investing in the media, it is interesting to note that this area also saw significant growth since 2010, increasing by 20 percent to US$ 5.2 billion in assets. In 2010, when the SIO last surveyed the financial industry, markets were just beginning to recover from one of the worst financial crises in recent history. Since that time, markets have improved, with the S&P/TSX Composite Index rising 5.8 percent and total assets under management growing by 9 percent. At the same time, total sustainable investing assets have grown by 16 percent, with gains among institutional asset owners and managers, in the retail industry, and in impact investing. This growth, at levels outpacing that of the market as a whole, is good news for sustainable investing in Canada. In Canada total sustainable assets have grown by16 percent
