Frankfurt, 11 July 2022 – Finance in Motion has been designated as a "Practice Leader" by BlueMark, a provider of independent impact verification services for investors and companies. Finance in Motion is one of only five to be awarded the title out of a total of 60 impact investors verified – recognizing the firm’s rigorous impact management and advancement of best practices in the industry.
In its third report, Marking the Mark, BlueMark has taken the practice benchmark a step forward and, for the first time, named a list of “Practice Leaders” – those verified investors that fall into the top quartile of its benchmark.
The benchmark is based on aggregated data and insights from 60 impact verifications for investors, with a combined USD 160 billion in impact assets under management, on their alignment with the Operating Principles for Impact Management (Impact Principles).
BlueMark verified Finance in Motion’s impact management system alignment against the Impact Principles in November 2021, leading to notable ratings as found in Finance in Motion’s Disclosure Statement.
“We are honored to be designated as a “Practice Leader” by BlueMark. At Finance in Motion, delivering tangible and verifiable impact is at the heart of what we do,” said Finance in Motion Managing Director Sylvia Wisniwski. “We are continuously honing our learning and strategy development so that we can raise the bar even higher when it comes to best practices in the impact investing market.”
