“We became a Pioneer GIIRS Fund, because we feel that it is important as an impact investor to not only measure financial returns, but also our social and environmental performance. GIIRS will allow us to measure our impact in a way that is consistent with other leading impact oriented funds in the space."

- Joe Glorfield, Partner, TBL Capital
