Mission-correlated investing is any investment strategy that is expected to produce financial returns that are positively correlated with the effectiveness with which you can deploy these returns for impact in the future. These strategies are often referred to as 'mission hedging', though strictly speaking these strategies will only hedge (reduce the variance of outcomes) in certain situations. It is also possible that a mission-correlated strategy increases the variance, and expected value, of future outcomes. There are many specific varieties including 'investing in evil to do good', investing in companies developing new risky technologies like AI, and investing in a way that has low or negative correlation with other altruists. The average investor's aversion to market risk can be viewed as coming from the mission-correlation between the market and their mission to consume more.
