Doing good while doing well has become the mantra of sustainable investing. While it is easy to measure whether an investment did well, assessing the good created remains a challenge. The lack of data and examples on the positive social outcomes of sustainable investing can be deterrent for family offices looking to start their impact journey. Taking research to practice, this session will provide grounded insights that will help you assess the positive change that your family office can make through strategic investments.
