We are witnessing a paradigm shift in how the world finances solutions to global challenges. Development institutions are working with both the private sector and large public funds to mobilize capital to advance their objectives. At the same time, large asset owners are recognizing how strategic investments in social impact can reduce volatility and enhance risk-adjusted returns over the long-term.
This session at the Concordia Summit 2016 focused on how sovereign funds, institutional asset owners, and policymakers can harness new investment strategies to achieve positive social outcomes alongside attractive financial returns.
