Making Money Do More: Sponsored by Lifelong Learning and the Wharton Social Impact Initiative
Oct. 21, 2014
In the last several years, impact investing has emerged as a promising tool for tackling some of the world’s most complex and enduring social problems. We’re not talking about philanthropy – we’re talking about investing. In impact investing, investors actively seek a positive, measurable social or environmental impact alongside a financial return. These types of investments span across asset classes and occur in both emerging and developed markets. They’re financing diverse efforts, including education technology, sustainable agriculture, financial services, the environment, and innovations in healthcare. A variety of investors, including institutional investors and venture capitalists, are engaged in impact investing to varying degrees. At this event, you’ll hear from Katherine Klein, Vice Dean of Wharton’s Social Impact Initiative, and Margot Brandenburg, co-author of the book The Power of Impact Investing, formerly of the Rockefeller Foundation, and Matt Christensen, the Global Head of Responsible Investment for AXA Investment Managers. They’ll discuss new approaches for examining risk and externalities, industry- and sector-specific innovations and investments, and how individuals and organizations can implement and assess impact investing strategies in their own work. Register here.
