Gender-based violence has enormous costs to the people who endure it, but also to society and the economy. In the U.S. alone, the annual cost of lost productivity due to domestic violence is estimated as $727.8 million, with over 7.9 million paid workdays lost each year. A 2018 report found that the total economic costs to the U.S. economy caused by intimate partner violence were a staggering $3 trillion over the victims’ lifetimes. While efforts focusing on using finance to address gender-based violence are still in the early days and many obstacles remain, there are a number of avenues investors can pursue. Tiedemann Advisors partnered with Criterion Institute, a leading non-profit think tank engaged in research, analysis, and innovation around using finance to create positive social change. With Criterion, we developed a detailed guide on how investors can start moving capital in alignment with ending gender-based violence. Here are some of our recommendations.

Impact investors are increasingly recognizing the power of their capital to catalyze change through new innovations or markets in overlooked and underestimated communities. As the impact investing industry has evolved, so too have the ways in which investors are deploying this capital – where they begin with the question, “What problem are we trying to solve?” and then ask, “What is the appropriate type of capital that will support a solution?” Catalytic capital is intentionally structured to be more patient, risk-tolerant, innovative, or flexible than conventional capital and can be invested across a range of private investment types. These investments prioritize social and environmental impact over financial return, seeking the appropriate return for the desired impact. [...]
Tiedemann Advisors commemorates Asian American & Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month which is celebrated in the U.S. throughout the month of May.
