BWB's Luke Fletcher is due to speak at the GIIN Investor Forum on Friday 11 October on Legal Aspects of Impact Investing: What We All Should Know at 12:00pm
Impact investors and their investees are subject to traditional investment regulation, but also to emerging questions specific to impact funds or social enterprises. Drawing on their experience, this panel of legal experts will explain in everyday language the key risks and regulations affecting impact investing in aspects ranging from investor obligations to investee governance and transaction questions.
The GIIN Investor Forum
At this first-ever conference held in partnership by the Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN) and the City of London Corporation, more than 300 investment professionals from around the world will come together to discuss and learn about the practice of social and environmental impact investment. Asset owners, asset managers, and other industry experts are invited to share diverse perspectives on impact investing in developed and emerging markets, industry trends and opportunities, and how to best address common challenges.
The main program will occur over a day and a half and is designed to cover topics relevant to both experienced impact investors and those new to the practice. Investors representing financial institutions, pension funds, foundations, development finance institutions, and investment funds will present on plenary panels and breakout sessions covering topics including investment strategy, asset classes, risk and return spectrum, and impact measurement. The Forum will also provide structured breaks to facilitate networking with peers and preeminent experts in the field.
