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

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.
