Impact Economy Symposium & Retreat 2014

Overview


Join the global leaders of impact capitalism at the 2014 Impact Economy Symposium & Retreat from June 13-15 at the shores of Lake Constance in Switzerland. The Symposium is a by-invitation only gathering designed for asset owners looking to turbo charge their philanthropy and investing. Over USD 10bn in assets were represented amongst the carefully curated group of attendees at last year’s event.

The theme for 2014 is “Daring for Big Impact: Blending Inspiration, Innovation and Investment.” Our motto is simple: the next big thing will be the industries that create value for shareholders and stakeholders alike. Those that achieve this balance are worth investment and support because they will fundamentally reshape how we live, work, and allocate capital. Have a look at the following two “opportunity maps” we conducted this year, which provide illustrations of areas that we work in and describe how market transformation can happen in the fields of finance and impact investing and in the global apparel industry.

Highlights of past speakers include Bob Harrison, CEO of the Clinton Global Initiative; Alois Flatz, Partner, Zouk Capital LLP and Co-Creator, Dow Jones Sustainability Index; Priscilla de Moustier, Entrepreneur and Philanthropist; Kim Samuel-Johnson, President of the Samuel Family Foundation; Daniel Schwartz, Board Member of Synergos and Founder and Chairman of the Board of Dynamica, Inc.; former Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger and his organization R20-Regions of Climate Action; Paul Schervish, Director, Center on Wealth and Philanthropy, USA; Pier Mario Vello, Secretary General of Fondazione Cariplo; and Janet Voûte, Global Head of Public Affairs, Nestlé.

Missed out on our 2013 Symposium & Retreat on sustainable capitalism this past summer? To capture the excitement of the event, we interviewed some of our speakers, including: Matthew Bishop, American Business Editor and New York Bureau Chief of The Economist; Kieron Boyle, Head of Social Finance at the Cabinet Office, United Kingdom; and Philipp Cottier, a leading European investor and philanthropist.
