Presented by

About this talk

While we support the UN SDGs, we are not associated with the UN and our funds are not endorsed by them. Many of M&G's focus points have been taken from the UNs SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). The UN outlined 17 key goals, including fighting poverty, zero hunger, gender equality, and climate action. Taking these goals, M&G has defined their own social responsibility and defined measurable goals and impact investments. Measuring the success of these efforts is vital for transparency and visibility. When it comes to investing in efforts combating the climate emergency, investments can show CO2 emissions saving in tonnes. Further, annual impact reports demonstrate the net positive impact of each investment. To make sure that investments are authentic and true to the fight against social and environmental issues, having numerical measurements of impact is key, even when impact feels abstract. In this session, we will discuss: - Best practices of impact investing - Investment regulations, and why these are important - Additionality and measurability The value of the fund's assets will go down as well as up. This will cause the value of your investment to fall as well as rise and you may get back less than you originally invested.
