The Economist Events' Impact Investing Conference
The relationship between the private capital markets and the well-being of society and the planet has become a hot topic. In 2015, in New York and Paris, the world’s governments signed up to ambitious goals to curb climate change and generate the sort of economic growth that benefits everyone, not just a wealthy minority – goals that it is estimated will require over $2.5 trillion a year of additional private investment.
Uniting leading financiers, institutional investors, policymakers, academics, impact investors and philanthropists, The Impact Investing Summit will analyse the main obstacles and opportunities presented by impact investing, broadly defined, and examine how it could alter the course of trillions of pounds of investment in the years to come.
