Fordham University hosted its first Impact Investing Conference on December 12, 2018. It attracted over 350 attendees from asset owners, asset managers, wealth managers, non-profits and academia, focusing on impact investing in various forms. Purview’s Linda Zhang moderated a panel that dig deep into the issues of what economic, social and governance factors are financially material to companies, investors and communities at large. The panelists agree that the impact investing has come a long way in framing and quantifying impact. Yet there is still a plenty of opportunity to establish better industry standards and best practices. For detailed agenda, topics, speakers, please check out the conference link.
