It is a well worth summit. The topics are of actuality, and the discussions are often times forward-looking. The people attending are for the most part very interested in impact investing so the discussion is very enriching. You will definitely learn new things, meet new interesting people and find new interesting products.
Impact Summit Europe is the yearly forum to meet thought leaders, sustainability specialists and sophisticated investment professionals who have a saying in how to make a difference in the world. The series of InvestorConnect meetings have provided us with contacts and investment opportunities to commit capital uniting investment returns and a positive change. From a.s.r. Asset Management we find it very exciting to partner with such organizations who can really catalyze impact in those areas where it is needed.
I do hope these type of events become more mainstream, as they truly enable more people to participate and contribute to the impact investing ecosystem.
This Summit really helps investors, proposals and managers to find each other so it is a great mediation opportunity.
One of the biggest and well-organized events on impact investing.

For an introduction in Impact Investing and for broadening your network the conference is worth visiting.

OUR COMMITMENT TO THE SDGs
The world is facing an abundance of environmental and societal challenges. Recent years have seen significant momentum surrounding the need for a ‘new normal’ where financial markets are designed to positively contribute to sustainable development. Despite this trend, significantly more private sector capital is needed to help finance the implementation of the 2030 Agenda, which requires investments in the amount of several trillion USD each year.
