Combining financial goals with social and environmental benefits, social impact investing is different from traditional financial models and is gradually expanding in China.
With the title of “Consensus, Innovation & Alliance”, this year’s Global Social Finance Forum will focus on impact investing: advocating the concepts, discussing theories, doing real-time communications, reaching consensus, and promoting innovation and joint actions. The Forum will also establish a platform of global cross-border cooperation, inspiring Chinese social entrepreneurs to promote new financial structures and sustainable development in China and worldwide, as well as to jointly tackle global challenges.
The Forum will be held in Futian District in Shenzhen, adjacent to Hong Kong. Futian District is one of the country’s three major financial centers, and is promoting the development approach of “Innovation, Coordination, Green, Openness & Sharing”. This approach guides Futian District with its development of social value investment, the exploration of new pathways for financial innovation and social welfare, as well as the ground work for building a global social finance center.
