May 2 at 4:00 pm PDT | Private Capital as a Tailwind for Social Impact

The influx of capital into private markets over the last 18 months has had a lot to do with the likelihood for attractive returns. But when this trend is examined further, it becomes clear that a significant part of the appetite for private markets stems from the view that they are uniquely effective vehicles for achieving social-impact goals. Private markets represent an incredible source of value creation. From our expert panelists we will hear a range of perspectives on how private markets are performing in the post-pandemic economy. What socioeconomic challenges are best addressed by private capital? How do LPs differentiate among the various levels of commitment to social impact? With the possibility of slowed economic growth and corporate cost-cutting, how will companies and investors ensure the longevity of impact programs? Panelists will also look toward other trends we may expect to see in private markets in the near future.
