“I was honored to give the key note speech at this year’s Impact Summit Europe conference in London. The event plays a vital role in allowing industry stakeholders to get together and discuss how investment capital can address pressing social and environmental challenges. This coming together of minds is important as it allows attendees to share ideas and build networks. It also helps to raise greater awareness about the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
This engagement is particularly relevant to me this year, as I recently launched Mobius Capital Partners, a new asset manager with an emphasis on improving governance standards in Emerging and Frontier Market corporations. Listening to some of the other attendees speak, it gave me a fresh take on a wider range of issues affecting developing markets and what we can do as a firm to help.”

"Impact Summit Europe brought together some of the world’s most sophisticated investors to learn about and discuss impact investing. Asset owners, asset managers, and impact practitioners openly shared ideas. Our team was impressed by the other attendees and the sophisticated conversations. We’d recommend Impact Summit Europe for asset owners and investment managers looking to understand today’s opportunities and challenges in impact investing and meet other like-minded institutions."
