AVPN Hong Kong Impact Investing Roundtable: From Niche to Mainstream

3:00–5:30 pm
International Commerce Centre
Zurich Room, L88, International Commerce Centre
1 Austin Road West, Kowloon, Hong Kong 


The rising awareness of social sustainability and the consequent changes in investors' behavior have been fostering impact investing. For the past decade, impact investing funds have amassed more than $77billion in asset under management, according to Mckinsey's estimation. The question arises on how this trend will re-shape the investment industry.

AVPN and the Rustandy Center for Social Sector innovation at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business are honored to have Priya Parrish - a seasoned impact investor and experienced mentor for impact investing programs in the US - share her insights on the industry and lead the discussion.  

Through the presentation and discussion, participants will be able to:

  • Glean insights into the evolution of impact investing and its relationship with the traditional financial market;
  • Explore why impact investment is growing fast in the US and its implications for Asia;
  • Discuss the possible formats that impact investment can take to scale up;
  • Examine how institutional investors should prepare for changes in the investment industry.  

Join us to build a vibrant impact investment community across Asia!
