The Economist Events' Impact Investing Conference
If some still view investing for impact as a vanity project, others are determined to make it a central part of the investment world. What does the rise of impact investing mean in practice for the leaders of funds, companies and NGOs? Is it possible to make every investment an impact investment? Where do the worlds of corporate bosses and seasoned impact investors align and where do they collide? Where does impact investing involve spin and where does it involve substance? What does purpose mean to companies and what does it mean to investors? Can you really tell when businesses are being good? What are the payoffs and costs associated with impact investing for all parties?
Join editors from The Economist and the world's premier financial institutions, wealthiest families, largest companies, most innovative startups and most influential foundations to analyse the rise of impact investing to the top of the leadership agenda.
