Social Impact Investing – trends, opportunities and risks

We found this presentation by John Prendergast on Social Impact Investing, to be a great summary of the current landscape.  Presenting as part of a Philanthropy NZ seminar, John shares his insights from a tour of UK. While his observations are aimed at the NZ market, they apply more widely – he notes at the embryonic nature of Social Impact Investment; the need to acknowledge that not everything is suitable for impact investment and the need for the growth in investible social enterprises.  Although there are challenges, it leaves you with a sense of optimism and excitement about the role social impact investing can play as part of a wider response.
