Dear participant,

Welcome to the ‘Investing for Global Impact: A Power for Good’ 2020 survey. This marks the 7th edition of the report, which is the largest study of its kind on private wealth in the impact investing and philanthropy space.

Although deep uncertainty surrounds many aspects of the COVID-19 unprecedented emergency and its profound impact is being felt around the planet, it must prompt us into action, with new urgency, energy and awareness, to profoundly rethink several aspects of our lives. This includes our social commitments, collaboration and cohesion, our environment, our governance, smart capitalism and globalisation and much more. Even if you do not currently take part in impact investing or philanthropy, your views are important to us and we would be delighted if you completed our survey. 

This study is conducted by Campden Wealth Research in partnership with GIST and Barclays Private Bank. It assesses the practices and opinions of individuals, families, family offices and foundations currently active, or simply interested, in this arena. 

Your identity and all of the data you provide will be treated as strictly confidential, and will not be shared with any third-party, including GIST and Barclays. Your responses will be amalgamated with that of others for the final report.

The survey will take approximately 15-30 minutes to complete (depending on the answers given). It has been designed so that you do not have to complete it in one sitting. Your input will be retained should you choose to finish it in stages, so long as you use the same device.

An asterisk on specific questions indicates that such questions require an answer so that the survey can be tailored to you. 

As a thank you for your participation, if you enter your contact details, you will receive a complimentary copy of the report upon publication in September 2020.

If you have any questions, please contact the Campden Research team at

Many thanks for your support.

Best wishes,

Dr. Rebecca Gooch
