Fund Rating Process

Congratulations on your commitment to measure and manage the impact of your fund. Below are details about the GIIRS fund rating process.

Once you’ve signed your B Analytics subscription agreement, you will receive an introduction to your primary relationship manager -- a B Analytics Services Associate -- and a Standards Analyst team member. They will be your key contacts at B Lab and will help you and your portfolio companies get through the rating process quickly and accurately!

Fund Cohort Information

We’re thrilled to welcome you to our upcoming Measure What Matters Fund Cohort!

The information below is designed to answer your questions about participation. If you have any additional questions, please email your B Lab Relationship Manager (Amanda Kizer or Neha Kumar).

Measure What Matters Initiative Launches

In 2011, leading impact investors put a stake in the ground—they declared their support for a common impact management platform by using B Analytics, GIIRS Ratings, and the B Impact Assessment.

Use B Analytics to Meet G8 Recommendations

This fall, the Social Impact Investment Taskforce of the G8 released their subject paper Measuring Impact, with seven best practice recommendations for impact investment management and measurement. The B Analytics platform can help you put those best practices into action.

Use GIIRS for SBIC Impact Investment Fund Application

On September 25th, 2014, the US Small Business Administration announced an extended $1 billion commitment to impact investing, requiring that SBIC funds applying to the SBIC's Impact Investment Fund use a third party assessment tool such as GIIRS Ratings.

Investment Document Templates

To make the most of your GIIRS Fund Rating and to set your Limited Partners’ expectations regarding GIIRS from the start, B Lab recommends that your firm incorporates language into its PPM that reflects your firm’s intention to be a GIIRS rated fund. See sample language to incorporate into your PPM regarding GIIRS.
