Bringing Clarity to Impact Investing

Registration for this webinar is closed.

Thursday, Nov. 17, 2016
2-3 p.m. CT | 3-4 p.m. ET

While impact investing continues to grow, it remains difficult to articulate, analyze and differentiate the impact in impact investing. While there are tools to understand investments on the basis of financial characteristics, the same cannot be said of impact characteristics.

During this Connecting Communities® webinar, speakers will discuss Navigating Impact Investing, a new report from consulting firm Tideline in which social investment experts propose the creation of impact classes as a way to optimize the matching of an investor's unique risk, return and impact preferences with the right opportunities.

Speakers include:

  • Ben Thornley, Managing Partner, Tideline
  • Cathy Clark, Director, CASE i3, The Fuqua School of Business, Duke University
  • Sasha Dichter, Chief Innovation Officer, Acumen

Participation in this webinar is free; however, registration is required. Sign up for this session at the Connecting Communities website.
