Impact investment may not be new, but it is definitely here to stay. "Impact investing is reshaping the future of financial markets as increasingly people are considering the societal and environmental impact of their investments in addition to their financial returns", writes GIIN with regards to the 2019 GIIN Forum.
The Forum was hosted 1-2 October in Amsterdam, in the building originally housing the Amsterdam's Stock Exchange, bringing together thousands of impact investors.
As part of the official program, the ICFA Luxembourg hosted a breakfast session on innovative climate finance, where Empower was invited to participate as one of the innovative fund managers. Our CEO shared how our impact investment fund and innovative business model can help scale up investment for renewable energy in Africa, and how we make this an attractive investment opportunity.
