Féminin Pluriel, the Global Women’s network, is delighted to invite you to an evening with Veerle Berbers on impact investing.
A growing number of women want to invest, not only for a financial return, but also to make the world a better place. This is called “impact investing”, an investment strategy which has globally doubled over the past two years: In 2017 $228 billion was invested with impact, compared to $114 billion in 2016 (GIIN). How can we do this ourselves?
Drs Veerle Berbers will explain how this field is developing and how even small savers can invest with a positive impact on society.
