“IMPACT INVESTING: From Private Equity To Microfinance” (sponsored by BROADRIDGE FINANCIALS INC)

Impact investing continues to increase in popularity as investors demand that companies focus on long-range sustainability and strong corporate governance. During the stock selection process, asset managers are increasingly examining the environmental, social and governance records of companies. Corporate managers are expending resources to enhance their corporate social responsibility reports, thereby highlighting their commitment to sustainable growth. This conference features a range of experts who will discuss recent trends in impact investing and its influence on corporate behavior and the social environment.
