Workshop – Developing an Impact Investing Strategy

November 7 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

£116.00 – £145.00

Despite the remarkable recent growth of ethical finance there are few academic or professional courses that provide commercially-focused pragmatic training. Our executive education courses do exactly that and we invite you to to register for this unique workshop, delivered in partnership with Tribe Impact Capital, that will provide you with the knowledge and tools to develop an impact investing strategy.

Overview

Over the last decade, impact investing has shifted from a disruptive investment concept to a complex and rich investment ecosystem. The growing impact investment market provides capital to address the world’s most pressing challenges in sectors such as sustainable agriculture, renewable energy, conservation, microfinance, and affordable and accessible basic services including housing, healthcare, and education.

Impact investors seek to generate social and environmental impact as well as a range of financial returns from below market to market rate, depending on strategic goals. According to PRI, more than 450 investors allocated US$1.3 trillion to impact investments worldwide in 2016 and the increasing demand for impact investing products and services has opened a new commercial avenue for asset managers, fund managers and service providers interested in this growing market.

This practical workshop, delivered by Tribe Investment Capital, will provide a contextual understanding of impact investing before embarking upon a unique learning journey that will help you to align your wealth / investment stewardship and creation with your personal values. This will help you develop your own personal impact investment strategy as well as equip you with the knowledge and skills to apply it within your organisation.

Learning outcomes include:

• Developing a detailed understanding of impact investing and where it fits into the world of responsible investing
• Identifying your personal values and risk tolerance
• Understanding the financial opportunities and investment vehicles available to you in as an individual and organisation
• Ability to develop an individual or corporate impact investment strategy

Topic Covered

  1. A Growing Market
  2. Creating your ImpactDNA
  3. Measuring Impact
