Impact Principles Webinar Series, Episode 8: Impact Investing in Public Equities


The topic of this 8th episode of the Impact Principles Webinar Series is ‘Impact Investing in Public Equities’. While most impact assets are currently in the private markets, publicly traded equities and debt represent the larger part of the investment universe. Mobilizing more of this capital to achieve positive impact would help meet the global challenges that we face. In this webinar, we have three experts on the topic to help clarify what is required to invest for impact in public markets: Sean Gilbert, Chief Investor Network Officer at the GIIN, Andrew Lee, Global Head of Sustainable and Impact Investing at UBS, and Quyen Tran, Director of Impact Investing and Head of Sustainable Investing Research for Fundamental Equity at BlackRock.
