We are delighted to invite you to our latest virtual Ethical Finance Round Table on 26 August (14:00 - 15:30 BST) that will consider the role of impact investing as we shift from “shareholder capitalism” toward “stakeholder capitalism.”
Entitled “Impact Investing – Can it Save Capitalism?” Dean Hand, Director of Research at the Global Impact Investing Network, Amy Clarke, Chief Impact Officer of Tribe Impact Capital and Tan Sri Dato' Azman Mokhtar, former Managing Director of Malaysia's Khazanah Nasional will share their views on the role the $502 billion global impact investing market can play in solving many of the world’s greatest problems as we transition to a new economic paradigm.
Impact investing is an exciting and rapidly growing industry powered by 1,300+ investors (such as asset managers, foundations, banks, development finance institutions, family offices, pension funds and insurance companies) who are determined to generate social and environmental impact as well as financial returns. This is taking place all over the world, and across all asset classes.
During the session Dean will frame the impact investing sector highlighting market size, latest trends, opportunities and challenges. Amy will then reflect on the current trends in impact investing highlighting challenges around investor appetite, measurement and greenwashing. Azman will conclude by sharing the lessons he learned from combining investment returns, strategic returns, and societal returns as part of the “Building True Value” initiative he led Malaysia. Both speakers will also outline their vision of an enlightened post-pandemic economy where the rules are reworked with impact investors playing a critical role.
