The Impact Revolution: Building the Investment Pipeline for an Inclusive Economy
Wednesday, July 22 | 8 am PDT and 11 am EDT
The economic challenges our world faces today are too great for capital to underperform. The convergence of health, environmental, economic and social justice crises underscores the urgency of understanding the causes contributing to inadequate economic growth shared unequally that amplify systemic risk and market uncertainty.
Experts design new business models and capital structures to empower impact investors, many of whom have seen their assets under management increase by 86% over the past four years, to perform and generate risk-adjusted returns. Research suggests that over the past 100 years, the financial sector's laser focus on risk and return has failed to capture the importance of impact as the accelerant to sustainable returns and regenerative economic growth. These front-line leaders in innovative finance will address how we build the pipeline of projects and businesses to catalyze this inclusive impact revolution.
