From CFA Society New York:
“Impact investing is often misunderstood. Is it a subset of investing or philanthropy? Come learn about how to incorporate impact investing into your investment strategy, and explore possible career paths in the impacting investing space. With the recent COVID-19 public health situation and civil and political upheaval, many more high net worth individuals and family offices are asking themselves, ‘What more can we do with our wealth? Are there social benefits that can be achieved while building wealth?’ At the same time, many investment professionals, both those new to the industry and the veterans who have ‘seen it all,’ are asking ‘What more can I do with my skills and training?’”
