Investing for Impact - hosted by The Economist (New York City) 15 Feb 2018

  • 15 February 2018 - 15 February 2018
  • Organiser: The Economist
  • New York City, USA

Join Economist editors and 200 financiers, institutional investors, policymakers, academics, impact investors and philanthropists in New York City for this important conference on impact investing. The discussion will explore the ways in which the world is at a crossroads, and how the growing uncertainty is creating an increase in interest from investors. Inequality is rising. Climate change is starting to make its presence felt, as the international effort to fight it falters. Economic globalization, which has delivered huge increases in prosperity for many but not all, is under threat from nationalistic populism. There are good reasons to believe that the world will continue to prosper; yet, far more than in recent years, there are also good reasons to worry that things could take a serious turn for the worse. As with the previous Economist summits on investment and impact, speakers and audience members will include leaders from the world's premier financial institutions, wealthiest families, largest companies, innovative startups and most influential foundations. The conversation and debate will be challenging, cutting through the hype to focus on the real issues that will determine whether investing for impact remains niche, or becomes a revolutionary agent of global change. Don't delay - sign up today!
