Connecting Communities: Bringing Clarity to Impact Investing

Connecting Commuities Publication

Thu., Nov. 17, 2016
3 p.m. - 4 p.m.



While impact investing continues to grow, it remains difficult to articulate, analyze and differentiate the impact in impact investing. While tools exist to understand investments on the basis of financial characteristics, the same cannot be said of impact characteristics.

Join this Connecting Communities webinar and discuss an idea to create impact classes as a way to match investments with the right opportunities. In this one-hour session, Ben Thornley of Tideline and Cathy Clark, a professor at Duke University, will share their proposed impact classes, the feedback they have received from stakeholders, and how to turn this concept into reality. Sasha Dichter of Acumen will offer a practitioner’s reflections on what an impact class framework may mean for the impact investing field.
