The SDGs are the new black on the investment conference circuit.

The IFC’s Global Private Equity Conference, May 16–17 in Washington D.C., will feature Bill McGlashan, head of TPG’s Rise Fund, which is raising $2 billion for emerging market impact investing (see, “Deconstructing TPG’s $2 billion RISE Fund”).

Another speaker: the new CEO of the World Bank, Kristalina Georgieva (see “World Bank tiptoes toward impact bonds and a focus on results”).

Warburg Pincus CEO Charles R. Kaye will join more than 850 emerging markets private equity fund managers, institutional investors and stakeholders from more than 60 countries.

ImpactAlpha is a media sponsor for the event (see our report from last year’s event, “Impact Investing a Bright Spot in Emerging Markets Private Equity”).
