Impact Summit Europe

Phenix Capital and The City of The Hague are proud to announce the second edition of the Impact Summit Europe on 22 and 23 March 2016 at the Peace Palace in The Hague, The Netherlands.

Why a summit on impact investing?

An increasing number of institutions share the conviction that investment capital can effectively address social and environmental challenges. The focus is no longer why impact investing, but how?

The Impact Summit Europe offers a platform to exchange best practices, challenges and opportunities in the impact investment space, thereby creating an enriching experience for its participants.

During the summit, eminent leaders of the impact investment industry will gather, providing a unique networking and educational opportunity.

Who should attend?

150 to 180 institutional mainstream investors, impact investors and impact experts are gathered, as well as 20 to 30 pre-screened impact fund managers, whose strategy is representative of the current investible impact universe. Institutional and impact investors include amongst others:

Pension funds
Fiduciary managers
Wealth managers
Private banks
Development finance institutions
Government agencies
Family offices
Insurance companies
Multinational corporations
Non-governmental organizations

What’s the conference program in a nutshell?

Keynote speeches and plenary panel discussions. The Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations will be a key element of the program.
InvestorConnect sessions are one-on-one meetings between pre-selected institutional and impact investors and impact fund managers in various asset classes (e.g. public equity, public debt, private equity, private debt, and real assets), where the fund managers have the opportunity to efficiently share their scalable strategy and the impact they are generating with their investments.
The Impact Academy will cover the current challenges and opportunities of mainstreaming impact and other key themes, such as impact measurement. Together with the World Economic Forum we will co-host an interactive impact investment game as ran during their past four annual meetings in Davos.
