Impact Summit America

is a highly curated institutional investor conference that annually brings together thought leaders and practitioners in the impact investing space. The conference aims to catalyse institutional capital to support the UN's Sustainable Development Goals, promoting sustainable investing that goes hand-in-hand with market-competitive financial returns. This conference will share practical instruments for investors to increase their impact allocation, contributing to scaling their positive impact on people and the planet. It also provides the necessary content and tools to start investing for impact and returns.

We look forward to connecting leading North American institutional investors for a meaningful dialogue at the 5th Impact Summit America in New York City.
ISA 2023 theme 2
  1. It is widely acknowledged that there is an urgent need for systemic change across the financial system. Short-term interests and unthoughtful use of capital power has left a catastrophic footprint on the environment and societal landscape. It is time to reimagine the purpose of capital and give it meaning as an extension of our intent.


    We envision institutional investors playing a leading role in creating an equitable system in which institutional capital enables solving societal and environmental challenges on a global scale.

  2.  

Tackling systemic issues from within 

 

Institutional investors have the power and agency to implement meaningful mandates that will create systemic change from within. But how? Investors have to make long-term decisions in a complex future where the right move and direction are difficult to estimate. Immobility is however not an option.

Supporting decisions with appropriate data

 

There are challenges - amongst others, the lack of precise measurements or on the other hand the abundance of indicators that cannot be aggregated. To overcome these pain points, the Summit will feature practical sessions to give institutional investors the tools to define their impact goals and measure real-life impact, discuss in a debate setting the overall feasibility of robust Impact Measurement & Management frameworks. 

Investing and solving complex social issues

 

There are many calls to action to be made by institutional investors who are committed to creating meaningful social impact through their investments. Impact Summit America will focus on solving major issues locally, such as the energy transition, gender and racial inclusion, and affordable housing, as well as American involvement in emerging and developing markets through public-private partnerships.

TESTIMONIALS ABOUT OUR EVENTS

WHAT OUR ATTENDEES SAY

SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS

OUR COMMITMENT TO UN SDGs

The world is facing an abundance of environmental and societal challenges. Recent years have seen a significant momentum surrounding the need of a ‘new normal’ where financial markets are designed to positively contribute to sustainable development.

Despite this trend, significantly more private sector capital is still needed to help finance the implementation of the 2030 Agenda, which requires investments in the amount of several trillion USD each year.

Phenix Capital Group accompanies institutional investors and asset owners throughout their impact journey. We provide tools to facilitate the implementation of a successful impact investing allocation and to navigate current impact investing opportunities.
