About this talk

Impact investing will into public markets, driven in particular by the large investments needed to achieve Net Zero by 2050 and the United Nations’ Social Development Goals by 2030. And impact investing is about targeting a quantifiable double bottom line: doing well financially and doing good socially, which has proved challenging in public markets owing to a lack of transparency: reliable data on quantifiable impacts have been notable by their absence.

The report shows that impact investing is a pragmatic advance on a steep upward curve. It provides a timely perspective on new drivers that will likely power the next wave of growth. The webcast will address the following topics: • How the world‘s largest pension funds define impact investing • Key drivers of interest to engage in impact investing • Main themes targeted and their outcomes to date • Chief obstacles to extending impact investing across public markets and pragmatic approaches to addressing these • Practical thoughts on implementation
