Investing For Change: Our Global Impact

Presented by Lukwesa Burak

Imagining the Future of Investment

Against a backdrop of challenging economic, social, and political change, a focus on targeting investment goals beyond maximising profits and minimising risk has never been more important. We showcase organisations who are placing social impact at the heart of their investment strategy and applying non-financial factors into the investment process as a response to global challenges.
