Join a conversation on regional impact investment trends, challenges, and opportunities from our speakers' experiences in the ecosystem.
The second virtual cross-chapter dialogue will be on Impact investing: Uncovering Opportunities for Growth, Returns, and Impact in Brazil, India and South Africa.”
In the past decade there has been a rising demand for impact investing in the form of socially responsible and purpose-driven finance in the SGB ecosystem in Brazil, India, and South Africa. The United Nations postulates that achieving “the SDGs will take between $5 to $7 trillion, with developing countries facing an investment gap of about $2.5 trillion”(UNCTAD, World Investment Report 2014). As a result impact investing has become an effective tool that the ecosystem believes can significantly contribute to closing this investment gap and promoting sustainable development in emerging markets.
Come join us as we hear from Gilberto Ribeiro de Oliveira Filho (“Giba”) (Partner and COO of Vox Capital), Ringetani Ndlovu (Lead portfolio manager, Impact Investing, Ashburton Investments) and Ramraj Pai (CEO, Impact Investors Council) on regional impact investment trends, challenges, and opportunities from their experiences in the ecosystem.
