Impact investing, as the furthest form of sustainable finance, has gained in research attention. However, there is no complete bibliometric review on this topic. We map the academic contri- butions to impact investing, highlighting the most influential research streams and trends by conducting a bibliometric review based on a keyword search analysis of the Elsevier Scopus database. The final sample consists of 115 academic papers published in ABS 3+ journals between 2009 and October 2021. We identify the most influential articles in the field; map the different streams of impact investing research; visualise focus areas and trends; and pinpoint areas for further research. These findings will help academics focus their research on under-investigated areas within this heterogeneous niche.
