Investing Impact Capital In Africa — 2020 London Forum
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.
