Responsible Finance & Investing Summit

Event : Responsible Finance & Investing Summit

Tue, 07/05/2013  
Conducted by : World Congress
Contact : Alexis Burgess

 The development of investment vehicles to propel social change has evolved significantly over the past decade: from corporate responsibility mandates, microfinance and socially responsible investing to increasingly institutionalized impact investing.  We now find ourselves at an important junction, ready to set forth and explore the next stage of investment strategies that will leverage market mechanisms for social impact.  Moving beyond simply screening out portfolio companies that may cause social or environmental harm or selecting investments that meet specific responsible investing mandates, the Responsible Finance & Investing Summit sets the stage for the institutional investors, bankers, fund managers and the financial community overall to explore the next generation of sustainable and responsible - cutting edge financial innovations that will generate significant financial returns.

We will explore the intricacies of this increasingly important investment strategy, including:
Navigating the Landscape: The Opportunities and Structures
Sector Specific Analysis: exploring opportunities in housing, education, healthcare, infrastructure and others to pay attention to
Corporate Governance
Performance, Valuations and Benchmarks
Developing Investment Vehicles: Aligning Appetites and Goals
Liquidity and the Long Term Impact Investment Strategy
New approaches, trends and policy developments
