Small Giants’ Danny Almagor launches new impact investment firm
3 November 2021 at 3:54 pm

Sentient Impact Group, described as the love child of Small Giants and Impact Investment Group, is getting ready to take impact investing to the mainstream. 

Since 2007, Danny Almagor has been a pioneering force in the impact investing space. 

Together with his wife, Berry Liberman, he has founded Small Giants – the not-for-profit education initiative and publisher of Dumbo Feather magazine – as well as Impact Investment Group (IIG).  

Then 2020 hit and, just like the rest of us, Almagor had time to reflect and figure out his next move. 

In an interview with John Treadgold for the Good Future podcast, Almagor talked about the impact the Australian fires of 2019/2020, which were quickly followed by the pandemic, had on his thinking.

It prompted him to wonder how the world would move forward – and how impact investing could assist with the transition into a post-pandemic, climate stricken future.

Not one to do things by halves, Almagor’s answer was to launch a new advisory firm with the aim of bringing impact investing to the mainstream.

Almagor calls Sentient Impact Group “the love child of Small Giants and IIG” and claims that the firm will have a strong focus on renewable and clean energy, including areas of energy efficiency and waste.

Sentient will also work with other, smaller impact investors to help them grow and thrive in the space. 

Almagor said that as well as focusing on energy, Sentient will also be looking at how impact investing can be used to benefit the world’s social problems. 

“The mindset is not asset classes, but solutions to problems,” Almagor said. 

“And, in designing a solution to the problem, we’ll use traditional finance methods, whether it’s debt or equity, different asset classes, or other structures of funds.”
