Norsif Breakfast Seminar: Impact Investing – Trends and Developments

Past Event
14/02/2017 Oslo, Norway Events

Impact investing is a term many have heard of, but that is still loosely defined and for many it is associated with high risks and low returns. Is impact investing relevant for institutional investors? We will go through the history and development of impact investing and look at the interface into the traditional investments. We will also hear about the lessons to be drawn by the work that has been done internationally, and how impact investing can be put in the context of the UN development goals.
