About this event

In anticipation of Earth Day on April 22, Impact Capital Managers and Morrison Foerster, along with Toniic, are pleased to welcome you to the official launch event previewing key findings from a new ICM-MoFo study focused on Legal Innovation in Impact Investing. This special preview event is for members of our valued peer networks; the official report will be made available to the public on April 22.

Thoughtful legal advice is core to effective investing for any impact fund manager. From the formation of a new impact fund and throughout the investment lifecycle—from sourcing, to diligence, to negotiation, value creation, and, in most cases, exit—legal tools are an integral part of the investment process. Increasingly those tools are being developed and applied in ways to help all investment stakeholders create and protect not only their financial interests, but their impact objectives as well.

During this hour we'll hear from report authors, legal experts, and private capital fund managers who participated in this exciting and timely research, and learn about the growing library of resources available to impact investors via the Toniic Impact Terms Platform. Participants will be encouraged to contribute throughout via polls and chat.
