Investors around the world are making impact investments to unleash the power of capital for good. Funds are making headlines as more and more capital finds its way into ethical portfolios, ESG forward companies and projects. But is it actually happening? Or is this green washing?
Can you do good, and make a financial return? Or do most impact investments need to be concessionary? What are the trade offs? And how can you get involved? Let’s find out!
Hear how Ylva Lindberg. EVP of Strategy at Norfund is doing just this – doing good for society whilst generating returns for the sovereign fund. You’ll also hear from Duncan Grierson, founder of Clim8invest.com, a new fintech platform that allows retail investors to fight climate change and invest sustainably.

Join us for the second event in the three part series. In this session, we will continue to explore why Balance in Business matters, how to implement it and recognise the value it creates for the organisation. Join our expert panel, learn from their experiences, and continue the discussion on how boards can ensure that balance in business is at the heart of a company’s strategy.

The pandemic has further accelerated a shift to a virtual life, with more of us connecting to others via zoom, social media and other apps. It has been a boom for digital and online companies. Simultaneously, social distancing rules have kept us physically apart and isolated, spurring discussions on mental health and the importance of relationships for our wellbeing.
Join us for a conversation with Nir Eyal, best-selling author of Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products, a must-read for product developers aiming to increase consumer engagement, and Indistractable: How to Control Your Attention and Choose Your Life, a fascinating and award winning how-to guide on wresting control back from technology, to manage your attention for what really matters to you. We’ll discuss his books and how to get the best from technology without letting it get the best of us.
