Learn more about Impact Investing for the mainstream
As a part of 'Good Money Week' EQ Investors are running an event for advisers and paraplanners to explore this more. Just like the powwow's it is free! Plus you get to visit me in our beautiful offices (avec beach & cow!) here in central London and maybe stick around for a drink afterwards.
The event is on 11 October 2017 15:00-17:30. Tickets can be booked at the link below; let me know if you are coming so I can keep an eye out for you. If you have any questions please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org
In recent years, the amount of money invested in sustainable, responsible and impact investing has been skyrocketing. Despite this, impact investing remains overlooked by the vast majority of financial advisers.
To coincide with Good Money Week, this 90-minute session will explore the rise of impact investing, the benefits from a dual-focus on impact & peformance, and how advisers can get involved in promoting this rising asset class to their clients.
Attendees will hear from Damien Lardoux, manager of EQ’s Positive Impact Portfolios and two leading fund management groups, Janus Henderson and Columbia Threadneedle Investments. Each fund manager will discuss their impact investing process, providing case studies showing the benefits of an impact based approach to portfolios.
The event will conclude with refreshments and further opportunities for networking.
