Impact Investment - Finance vs. Implementation

Presented by

Dana Hanby; Jim Totty; Boris Kamstra

About this talk

Surveys of investors have shown a great interest in Impact Investing and in putting money behind the companies that make a positive difference to the world. Even though the size of the global impact investing market is growing – at about US $700bn – it is still considerably smaller than the inflow of capital into other sustainability-focused strategies. - Can we expect an acceleration in scaling up of Impact Investment and what are the key challenges to achieve it? - How are Impact Investments selected and where are they located? - Does a wide range of bespoke approaches to impact measurement serve the industry well or do we need standardization and do methodologies such as the IFC’s Impact Management Framework and the Impact Management Project help achieve this? - How easy is it to compare portfolios? - What level of returns are Impact Investors looking to achieve benchmarked against general market returns? - What type of investors are interested in Impact Investing and do their expectations differ? - Are Impact investment strategies working at the Implementation point? These and many more questions we will be discussing with our excellent panel: Jim Totty – Managing Director – Viridis Capital (Private Equity) Boris Kamstra – Executive Director – Alphamin Resources PLC Moderated by Dana Hanby – Managing Director – ESG Nexus
