Impact investing field trip

When: Tue 5th Sep 2017 to Wed 6th Sep 2017 (2 days)

Working in partnership with organisations including Philanthropy Australia, the Forum provides a platform for RIAA members and the wider impact investment ecosystem to come together in the interests of building a strong impact investment market in our region and integrating impact across investment portfolios.

The Impact Investment Forum is focused on growing awareness and knowledge of impact investing; building the capacity of impact investing advisers and practitioners; broadening networks; and influencing policy in support of impact investing.

The Impact Investment Forum is leading an impact investing field trip on 5 and 6 September. The two-day field trip will take trusts, foundations, family offices and advisers out into the field to meet with pioneering impact investors, investees and key players in this growing sector.

Participants will engage in a two-day exploration of impact investing including: constructing a portfolio that delivers measurable positive impact, unpacking different asset classes for impact and looking at key themes including housing and conservation. It includes visits to organisations and programs financed through impact investments including social impact bonds and other unique structures.

There are a very limited number of places available. Philanthropy Australia members are eligible for a 10% discount of the full rate. Please note that first priority is given to RIAA members.
