TPG Growth has set up The Rise Fund (http://therisefund.com/), a PE/Growth Equity style social impact fund of $2bn, a year ago or so. In recent weeks there were news that KKR has registered for a Global Impact Fund and in 2016 Apollo has teamed up with the IFC, the private sector arm of the World Bank to create a $1bn Credit fund targeting distressed assets in Emerging Markets.

I was wondering if someone has some from PE has some view about whether this is trend or does even has insight from the groups mentioned?

IMO this might be really great new assets class and exiting sector to work in, given you could do really well not only for yourself but also for the Greater Good.
