DFI Impact Investment Roundtable
06 Dec 2017
Senior-level Conversation with Development Finance Institutions on Investing for Impact.
As impact investing grows in scale and attracts greater investment flows, more fund managers and advisors are getting involved in sourcing, screening and reporting on investments that deliver measurable impact alongside financial returns.
Development finance institutions (DFI) are the original impact investors – we have been sourcing and managing commercial investments in emerging markets for economic and social impact over the past 70 years. In the process, we have developed substantial experience and expertise of relevance to impact investors, whether institutional investors, asset managers, philanthropic organizations or family offices. We also offer co-investment opportunities for investors seeking exposure to emerging market assets that offer measured impact, commercial returns, and rigorous attention to environmental, social and governance safeguards.
The EBRD is hosting a closed-door conversation between DFIs—EBRD, IFC, and CDC—and selected impact investors that will explain DFI approaches to investing for impact and identify opportunities for collaboration. The roundtable conversation will be held at EBRD’s London Office (1 Exchange Square) on 6 December, from 9:00am to 14:00pm, followed by a lunch.
This event is by invitation only.
