At the sequel in London next week, the magazine will ask whether it’s possible to build ‘impact’ into the fabric of traditional investment firms.

Those gathering to discuss “purpose-driven finance” include Sir Ronald Cohen, chair of the Global Steering Group for Impact Investment, Maya Chorengel of TPG’s Rise Fund, Danone CEO Emmanuel Faber and more than 200 financiers, institutional investors, policymakers, academics, impact investors and philanthropists.
