ESAFON letter 2018:

Impact investing is a global trend driven by investors and asset owners, entrepreneurs, NGO’s, Governments and Corporates who seek a positive social and environmental impact in their investments.

There is, therefore, a global growth of sustainable assets driven by global challenges affecting our planet and investors preference that factor social and environmental impact into their investing decisions.

Our main objective at ESAFON is to drive the impact agenda forward to help build-up a true understanding of impact in investing and adopt positive impact as part of mainstream instruments within the capital markets and investment strategies.

A core characteristic and challenge of impact investing is the measurement and management of social and environmental impact alongside financial returns.

The ESAFON 3rd Annual Global Impact Investment Conference key objective is to educate and provide investors and stakeholders with the most relevant information and resources from skilled worldwide impact practitioners to overcome the obstacles in impact management and measurement including due diligence, ongoing monitoring and reporting.

The conference will provide useful tools and takeaways to construct impact and alpha under the same model and across portfolios and asset classes from both investors and manager’s perspective.

Overhauling Modern Portfolio Theory through a 100% impact investing approach will be shared with the audience and lessons learnt and obstacles occurred will be fully discussed.

Family offices, foundations, institutional investors and managers have different motivations, challenges and constraints that will be pragmatically addressed, detailed and debated over panel sessions.

Join our 150+ high profile participants in Geneva next April 19th, 2018.

Francois & Anne Golbery and ESAFON wish you a Happy & Impactful New Year 2018 on the path towards a better world!
