CFA – Impact investing and climate change

10 October 2019 @ 13:00 - 17:00

The Responsible Investment Committee and the Private Banking Committee collaberate to bring you:
Impact investing and climate change

“The economy wasn’t created to make money, the economy was created to add value” (quoted from the film of PYMWYMIC & Finance in Motion which will be shown during the event).

And according to the Financial Times, ‘Impact investing is investing with the specific objective of achieving positive social and/or environmental impact as well as financial return.’

But, what is really meant by impact investing? Is it an asset class? Can it be a product and/or a service? Where does impact investing differentiate from, for instance, traditional investing, responsible investing, sustainable investing & ESG?

And finally, is the world ready for this relatively new form of investments? In our first panel discussion, experts in this field, such as ASN Bank, Fair Capital Partners, PYMWYMIC, Amundi and REDD+ will touch upon these topics.

In a second panel discussion, frontrunners in these markets, represented by Finance in Motion, ResponAbility, Symbiotics, Amundi and Phenix Capital, will showcase innovative business opportunities to prevent climate change.

You will get insights into how you can make an impact from your investment as pension fund, bank, family or (institutional) investor. Such an impact can be positive in terms of social and environmental impact as well as financial return for the investor.

After this session you will have gained new insights into practical opportunities for  impact investing, based on examples from leading asset managers and innovative frontrunners.
