TESTIMONIALS ABOUT IMPACT SUMMIT EUROPE

rsz_mark_mobius.jpg

“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."

‘’We see it as our fiduciary duty to generate societal benefits with our (impact) investments’’

MN amplifies the ambition of Impact Summit Europe to accelerate impact investing and investments into the Sustainable Development Goals. We think the financial sector can play a very important role in reaching the SDGs. We see it as our fiduciary duty to generate societal benefits with our (impact) investments.

MN works to ensure the financial future of almost two million people in The Netherlands. We do so by implementing pension and social schemes for our clients. We aim for both financial and social return and long-term value creation. We manage more than 125 billion euros in an efficient manner, with a focus on people and the environment. As a universal owner we believe that a strong, resilient and equal society is an essential condition for the long-term financial performance of our
investments.

3 years ago MN embarked on the journey of impact investing. With the establishment of the Impact Framework we developed with our clients we are well equipped to scale up our impact investments and Sustainable Development Investments (SDIs). The Impact Summit Europe is a platform of great value bringing together impact propositions, asset owners, asset managers. The summit is about sharing knowledge, exploring new collaborations and seizing (impact) opportunities.
