It’s been just over a decade since the term ‘impact investing’ was coined by The Rockefeller Foundation and the concept is refreshingly simple. It’s an investment approach that aims to make a positive contribution to society or the environment, alongside an attractive financial return.

Join us on Wednesday 17 October as we discuss, analysis and debate the issues and opportunities in impact investing:

  • Measuring impact & latest trends: findings from our second annual impact report
  • Building an impact-focused investment portfolio: how to align your investments with your values
  • Current investment opportunities: hear from one of our newest fund managers

The event will conclude with refreshments and further opportunities for networking.

Attendees will also receive a copy of our second annual impact report.
