Phenix Capital is proud to present Impact Summit France, a one-day conference with investment game-changing discussions on Sustainable & Impact Investing. As an official side event of the PRI in Person conference (10-12 September), the Summit will welcome institutional investors and asset owners around the globe, alongside local investment community.
Impact Summit France is designed to encourage meaningful peer-to-peer dialogues between asset owners; share the latest developments and best practices of Impact Investing and Sustainable Development Investing; as well create a collaborative community between asset owners and recognised impact fund managers.
FMO Investment Management will be represented by its CEO Yvonne Bakkum during a panel on Mobilising Institutional Capital into the Emerging Markets. A topic close to our hearts and business.
The Panel: Mobilising Institutional Capital into the Emerging Markets
The Sustainable Development Goals are designed to address global challenges by 2030 but the solutions are implemented locally, nationally and regionally with the majority of the efforts focused in the emerging markets. How can capital be mobilised effectively into these markets; and what are the main challenges and opportunities?
Where and When
The event will be held at Palais Brongniart, Paris
September 9, starting at 10:30 till ~18:30
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 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.
