Impact Investing Afterwork
As a continuation to our successful kick-off of impact investing afterworks, the next discussion on the topic will take place soon!
The topic this time is the transformation of traditional players in the field of investing: increasingly, institutional investors are starting to consider the impact they can make by choosing where to invest instead of only focusing on responsible investing narratives.
Our three speakers with versatile backgrounds in impact investing will shed light on the topic from their angles and guide us towards discussions and change of insights. By attending you'll get to hear real life examples from the tables where the transition takes place and get insights on how the impact of the investments is quantified.
Please let us know about your attendance so we know to get prepared with the right amount of drinks and snacks: https://goo.gl/forms/s2GHWLLKlKT25Yb53
