Impact Investing is a rapidly growing and evolving class within the social investment sector. Toniic, a global network for impact investors, is publishing their newest T100 report this month. The report is a study of 76 portfolios from family offices, foundations and high-net-worth individuals committed to fully investing for social and environmental impact. When the term impact investing was coined 10 years ago, it typically meant early-stage investments in social enterprises. This report reinforces that the state of the art in impact investing is a portfolio approach, in which investors seek positive impact in all asset classes across a portfolio. It also shows the increasing discernment of these investors in balancing impact and financial goals in different parts of their portfolios.
This event will be an opportunity to hear from the CEO of Toniic, Adam Bendell on insights from their new T100 report and on the state of global impact investing including:
- How investors can align their work to the UN Sustainable Development Goals
- How different investors measure impact
- How to think about asset classes and liquidity when pursuing particular impact themes
- What tradeoffs different impact investors do or don’t make with respect to financial returns
- How goals vary between family offices, foundations and individuals
