Pymwymic, the ‘Put Your Money Where Your Meaning is Community’ is hosting Impact Days on April 2 & 3 2019 in The Netherlands. The conference this year, is a special edition as Pymwymic will be celebrating 25 years of being committed to impact and action.
Celebrating 25 years: Change is in our Choices
In 1994, a small group of pioneer investors looked in the mirror. They wondered why they were focusing on profit on the one hand and on improving conditions for people and planet on the other. They decided to challenge the system, themselves and each other by putting their money where their meaning is. This is how Pymwymic was born.
Now 25 years later, to honour this occasion, Pymwymic wants to challenge all involved by taking a close look in the mirror again and asking themselves: are we making the choices that will lead us to a better future? Those intend to learn from their past, are honest about the present, can make a pact for the future. During the conference, there will be unique opportunities to learn about impact investing through several sessions and workshops, while being challenged by global change-makers such as Feike Sijbesma, H.R.H. Princess Mabel van Oranje, and Sir Ronald Cohen, to look in the mirror to become a better version of ourselves.
Sponsored by FMO Investment Management BV

Last year I posted a blog called “The new IRR - Impact, Risk and Return”. With almost 900 viewers, this blog is my best read post to date and triggered many enthusiastic reactions. In essence, I advocated a new IRR: looking at every investment taking into account its Impact, Risk and Return.
"Influential people from emerging market countries make up a far smaller share than emerging markets’ 85% share of the world’s population, their 75% of global land mass or their 55% share of global GDP."
The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have been widely adopted as a useful framework for impact investing. Really?

The search for a relation between environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria and corporate financial performance (CFP) can be traced back to the beginning of the 1970s. Scholars and investors have published more than 2000 empirical studies and several review studies on this relation since then. This study extracts all provided primary and secondary data of previous academic review studies.
