Impact investors deploy capital with the intention to generate positive, measurable social and environmental impact along with a financial return. Impact investors often focus their investments on companies or funds with strong environmental and social impact, and shy away from those that don’t have robust ESG initiatives. When institutional investors are building an impact investing strategy, what is the right pace of adoption you should consider? How do risk tolerance and investment horizon come into play? What asset classes should you be looking at? What are your reporting expectations? What resources do you need to be successful? Should your return expectations be different than your other investments? This closed-door session exclusively for institutional investors will give a detailed overview of the impact investing strategy.
