The difference between reaching and failing to meet financial goals during an impact investment can come down to the details behind how the funds are formed, according to Morrison & Foerster partner Susan H. Mac Cormac in the Law360 article “How To Make The Most Of Impact Fund Formation.

“People really need to be thoughtful when advising clients on what the best mechanism is [for putting together an impact investing fund],” she said. “We’re seeing a lot of people following the herd, which may be good and may not be good.
