Blended Value Investments


BVI is, by definition, a market-based approach to addressing many of the challenges facing the global community. BVI seeks to engage capital in creating sustainable, long-term solutions to those same challenges. Such strategies are defined as“blended value” and not “double bottom line” or philanthropy since they view the value being created as neither solely economic nor solely social, but a blend of both. This approach recognizes that economic value can create various forms of social and environmental impact and cannot be viewed as a separate component of the value proposition found within any given investment. Therefore, BVI seeks not a double bottom line, but rather a single bottom line with multiple value components
