Impact Investing: Mainstreaming purpose-driven finance

Once a niche activity exclusive to the wealthy and philanthropic-minded, impact investing is now championed by a growing number of leading institutions in the capital markets. As a recent G8 taskforce on impact investing predicted, the 20th Century approach to investing, based on risk and return, will be replaced by a 21st Century model built on risk, return and impact. However, such a shift is by no means inevitable with critics questioning the staying power of impact investing in mainstream finance.

Join editors of The Economist and more than 200 leading financiers, institutional investors, policymakers, academics, impact investors and philanthropies to analyse the main opportunities and obstacles to the mainstreaming of impact investment. It will be an important conversation: how trillions of dollars will be invested is at stake.
