    Impact Investing World Forum

    The Impact Investing World Forum (IIWF) is focused on investments that are in line with concerns such as environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The event will feature speakers from the Big Issue Group, ClearlySo, Goldman Sachs, the MacArthur Foundation, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, UBS (Union Bank of Switzerland) and the World Bank Group’s International Finance Corporation. Among the sessions are “Driving Impact for the Most Vulnerable,” “Multi-Asset Class Portfolios to Accelerate and Expand Impact Capital,” and “The Imperative for Impact: the Global Context.”

    Background on Organizer: IIWF, based in London, seeks to develop an investment community driven by “social impact.” This includes encouraging dialogue and action relating to the intersection of traditional arenas – such as investment banking, private equity, stock trading, venture capital and wealth management – with newer topics – such as ESG considerations, social finance, social impact bonds, sustainability, venture philanthropy, and emerging technologies such as blockchain and cryptocurrency. Financial data on the firm are unavailable.

    Cost: The fee to attend is GPB 1,350 (USD 1,866) plus a value-added tax of 20 percent. This includes in-person or online access to all sessions, networking lunches and teas, membership in a private LinkedIn group, access to presenters’ slides, video recordings of the proceedings, direct interaction with the speakers, and access to the list of delegates. Discounts of over 60 percent are available as of July 7, until a date that has yet to be finalized.
