About the Event
Since the term impact investing was formally coined in 2007 by the Rockefeller Foundation, the industry has experienced momentum. Today the term is on everyone's lips which is a positive sign. Nevertheless, we must pay attention while investing for impact, as one can cross the delicate line into greenwashing investments. If you take a closer look, impact investing is often used inaccurately and blurred. During our webinar, Mariana Christen Jakob will introduce the impact investing spectrum and will give us an insight into impact measurement and management. It is important to understand that impact investing goes beyond ESG rating, and that it asks less about how and more about what. If impact investing is to be broadly anchored in various asset classes, then structured and professional management of impact data is needed. Furthermore, our view must go beyond the asset allocation into the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Based on her experience at SEIF and SEIF Invest, Mariana will present the impact measurements, management tools, and methodologies she uses to assess ventures. This approach could also be transferred to listed equities or pension funds. An important prerequisite to doing so is that impact investing can really grow and does not stay just as a verbal concept. Please join us for this interactive conversation.
