Impact Investing

22nd - 24th September 2021


Until a few years ago, green and sustainable investment was considered idealistic - but unrealistic. Today, there are many impressive cases that showcase how impact finance can achieve the holy grail: a positive social and environmental impact, as well as a solid financial return.

Impact investing has gained a lot of traction in recent years: be part of the Trend!

The FS Impact Investing programme will equip you with in-depth skills about different investment strategies, outcome appraisal techniques and teach you the art of “deal-making”. During the three-day training, you will learn how to make a deal and analyse these deal as well as get an idea of investments in various markets. You will learn how to build partnerships across the private, public, civil society and philanthropic sectors, and develop appropriate organisational infrastructures and culture.
