The Growth of Impact Investing

With impact investing growing in scale and attention from mainstream investors, it is my pleasure to invite you to Kellogg Insight Live: The Growth of Impact Investing.

Please join me Thursday, February 11, for an evening of compelling discussion with an expert panel, featuring Jocelyn Cortez-Young '07 and Nathan Troutman '86. We will explore how impact investing differs from the related fields of sustainable finance and venture philanthropy. We'll look at the most attractive segments of the impact investing market by sector and region, and compare financial returns to benchmarks across conventional asset classes. And we'll discuss the importance of basing impact investment decisions on rigorous financial analysis and well-defined impact measures.

Register now to join your classmates and the Kellogg Alumni Club of New York to reconnect and exchange insights at this alumni-exclusive event.
