Mainstreaming Impact Investing

“Impact” investing can mean different things to different people – public, private, debt, equity, market return, concessionary capital, etc. Recently, “impact” has moved from its original philanthropic focus to mainstream investors who believe that a focus on environmental and social factors is good for business. This panel of leaders in the impact investing space will explore what impact means to a variety of different investors and describe how fund structures, financing instruments, and corporate form can help advance environmental, social, and governance goals in addition to profit.
