Impact Investment Summit Asia Pacific 2018: Wisdom|Courage|Action

The Impact Investment Summit Asia Pacific is the peak thought leadership and practitioner convening in the Asia Pacific for the growing phenomenon in the capital and finance markets, of impact investing.

This year we will gather around the theme of Wisdom | Courage | Action.  We will dive into global themes and challenges, issues of scale, look at the Sustainable Development Goals and how we can align our impact investment strategies with these global goals.

Impact investment is now an established, sizeable and global financial market hungry for knowledge sharing, know how, innovation and expertise. A growth market calling for leadership, strategic insight, best practice, good governance, high standards, and a well calibrated compass for healthy, sustainable growth.

Our convening, now in its fourth year, delivers on these needs, with a focus on shared learning, co-designing solutions, developing at an individual and collective level, and collaborating as broadly as possible. In doing this we can fertilise, cross-fertilise, activate and accelerate the impact ecosystem for a new, inclusive and creative economy.

Early bird registration now open. For more information, go here.

Start: November 7 @ 8:00 am
End: November 9 @ 5:00 pm
