The fourth Impact Investment Summit Asia Pacific brought together 350 attendees from the globe and region. 25 international speakers, 80 regional speakers & presenters, private investors, institutional investors, intermediaries, family offices, foundations, fund managers, and the social enterprise sector.
Convening around the theme of Wisdom, Courage, Action, we heard from international luminaries, took deep dives into impact themes with action learning world cafes, gained deep insight for our practice through workshops, and we witnessed some phenomenal firsts, like Australia’s first live blended finance crowdfunding experience.
The Summit sits at the beating heart of Asia Pacific's investment community. Impact investing is fuelling the rapid rise of finance as a force for good. It's a global trend that the Asia Pacific region has both an opportunity and imperative to understand and embrace. Our purpose is to be the catalyst and champion for impact investment in the region. We work with key partners, to grow the sector and demonstrate how 20th century capital market dimensions of ‘risk’ and ‘return’ are now expanding to include measurable social and environmental impact.
