Investing Capital for Sustainable Impact in Africa — The 2019 London Immersion

Impact investment has evolved from a novel investing concept into a mainstream investment approach that spans alternative and traditional asset classes. With a sophisticated investment ecosystem and AUM of over USD 228 billion as estimated by the Global Impact Investing Network. And growing support from policymakers, regulators and portfolio companies, this calls for optimism amid the confusion and misperception hindering scaling up impact capital.

However, alternative investors looking to allocate to impact investing still have a limited range of products and portfolio solutions to meet their needs. As well as lack of a more consistent way of defining, measuring and reporting on impact outcomes.

Themed 'achieving impact without compromising financial returns ', this immersion brings together drivers of impact projects, providers of impact capital, managers of impact capital and enablers of impact to explore new approaches to inspire, educate and identify ways of scaling up impact capital.

 

ESG and Impact Investing is now among the top two items on the agenda of alternative asset managers

The Deep Dive: Product Innovation & Measuring Impact

08 MAY 2019 | Time: 08:30 — 12:00 | Where: Park Plaza Westminster 

The Deep Dive: Product Innovation & Measuring Impact

The biggest challenge facing impact investing is finding a consistent way of defining, measuring and reporting on impact. Rather than everyone competing over whose measuring and benchmarking methodology is best - How can the industry come together and agree on some definitions and standards that are accepted across the market?

How can the industry develop products and vehicles of scale that can tackle the biggest social and environmental challenges whilst meeting the needs of larger investors that want to invest for impact but need to deploy capital at scale or mission-driven investors with a specific focus?

Policymakers and regulators have a critical role to play beyond fiduciary duty – introducing fiscal incentives to support impact businesses and impact-driven entrepreneurs? Act as a market facilitator, by commissioning and procuring impact products and services?
