Doing Well by Doing Good- Creating & Measuring the Value by Impact Investing
August 19 @ 9:00 pm – 10:30 pm
Impact investing challenges the long-held views that social and environmental issues should be addressed only by philanthropic donations, and that market investments should focus exclusively on achieving financial returns. Times have changed and now investors around the world are making impact investments, made with the intention to generate positive, measurable social and environmental impact alongside a financial return, to unleash the power of capital for good. Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN) 2020 Annual Impact Survey estimated the current market size at USD 715 billion at the end of 2019. The impact investing community is needed now more than ever to address the large-scale social and economic consequences of the global coronavirus pandemic. However, for investors, it’s hard to identify financially viable and promising businesses which struggle to solve two very difficult optimisation problems simultaneously — turning a profit and having measurable impact. Considering these issues, Nichefin has organised this webinar bringing the academic research and industry together with a fresh take on entrepreneurship to discuss the growing role of impact investing, ways to identify potential businesses and measure their progress.
What will be covered:
1. Impact investing- financial returns and long term impact
2. Impact investing benchmarks
3. Impact investing progress and challenges
4. Impact measurement and approaches
5. Evaluating Impact investing performance.
