Shared Learning: Social Impact Investment as a game changer
COVID-19 is affecting all aspects of our life and is predicted to act as game-changers in the way we live, work, and approach to societal, health, and environmental issues.
The global pandemic has also highlighted the creation of new opportunities for the impact investment sector, which could play a significant role in mitigating the effects of this crisis, achieving significant societal challenges. This would include how high risk early stage investment can achieve impact including a discussion about strategies and challenges related to exit.
Where does social impact investing sit in the spectrum of responding to the immediate crisis, and what is the value proposition of social impact investing? Could professional advisors help impact investors bridge the gap between short-term responses and longer-term effects? How supportive and competent are professional advisors to guide their clients in social impact investing and philanthropy?
Many steps have been taken to manage this crisis, but the biggest question mark is what types of economic recovery are expected after this crisis. During this webinar, we will discuss the issues above as well the role of professional advisors, the repercussions of Covid-19 on impact investing, and the challenges of exiting.
