BLACKROCK FAMILY OFFICE VIRTUAL SUMMIT

Impact investing: Reshaping capitalism

We know that most family offices are already engaged in impact investing. Whether you consider yourself an expert on the topic or are simply hoping to learn more, this session challenges us all to adopt a new way of thinking about capitalism. We are delighted to have Brian Deese, Global Head of Sustainable Investing at BlackRock and Sir Ronald Cohen, Chair of the Global Steering Committee for Impact Investment, otherwise known as the “father of impact investing” dissect this topic.

We learn that it’s clear that companies should be judged on the basis of their impact as well as their profit, and that investment decisions should made on the basis of risk/return impact optimization. As Family Offices, are you building impact objectives into your asset allocation?
