Impact Investing: The Future of Investing is Impact
Today, 17% of all assets of wealthy families are allocated to impact investments – investments targeting both a financial return and a measurable social benefit. This number is likely to increase dramatically in the future as 59 trillion dollars transfers in the coming 3 decades to the Millennial generation, 93% of whom believe solving social problems is a key driver in their investment decisions.
Impact investor and Cofounder of The ImPact, Justin Rockefeller, is increasing the probability and pace of solving social problems by improving the flow of capital to businesses creating measurable social impact. He shares the experience of Rockefeller Brothers Fund’s divestment of fossil fuels and moves into mission-aligned investing, and paves a path forward for people interested in impact investing in the 21st century – one that is tech-enabled, data-driven, value-based, and inspired by next-gen thinking.
"I really enjoyed your [Justin] presentation [at the NYSSA Single Family Office Conference] for several reasons. First, you have managed to demonstrate extremely rare challenges facing you in your desire to make an impact. Another reason why your presentation really resonated with me was that you have shared with the audience that you wanted to change the world for better when your daughter was born."
