Impact investing spans across all asset classes, yet its application in listed equities raises particular questions.

The Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN) offers a comprehensive guideline specifically for impact investing in listed equities. This resource provides practical tools and recommendations for implementing an impact strategy in this domain, while also clarifying the distinctions between impact investing and Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) approaches.

Join us at our SFG office to learn more about impact investing in listed equities with Sean Gilbert, Chief Investor Network Officer at the GIIN. He will provide some background information about the guidelines as well as some practical examples.
