Technology's Impact on Impact Investing

#sxsw #sxswimpact

Today's investors not only want a financial return on investment, but also social, economic and environmental returns. Impact investing has emerged as the next step in matching socially conscious investors with capital-seeking businesses.

Impact investing is rapidly gaining momentum and could represent a trillion dollar market in the next decade. Unfortunately, this new asset class traditionally has lacked transparency and liquidity. However, new alternative investment platforms are seeking to facilitate impact investment funding at a large scale.

In this talk, GATE Global Impact CSO DJ Paul will discuss the development of new marketplace infrastructure to deliver efficiency and transparency to impact investing. Mr. Paul will also discuss the passage of the JOBS Act and the ability of regular investors to participate in this new marketplace, which has traditionally been the prerogative of only the wealthiest of investors.
