Message from Conference Host
ICF Institutional Capital Forum, a division of IC Institutional Capital, organises conferences and events to enable professionals and businesses to grow and meet with likeminded people and industry peers.
In 2020, ICF organises the 3rd Sustainable Investor Summit. Sustainable and Impact Investing is growing rapidly in Austria and around the world. This growth reflects the need to finance social and environmental needs, but also an increasing desire by individuals and investors to use their capital to contribute to social and environmental challenges while generating a financial return.
There is a growing movement towards more responsible investing, which incorporates ESG considerations into investment decisions. Impact investing goes beyond avoiding harm and mitigating risks, as positive outcomes, which are beneficial to society or the environment are of the utmost importance. With it growing popularity, a key focus on sustainable and impact investing integrity will be needed. As the popularity of sustainable and impact investing grows exponentially, maintaining standards and integrity is key.
Key goals of the 3rd Sustainable Investor Summit are to boost investment and help to mobilise more capital across the spectrum of capital that can contribute to solutions for social and environmental challenges. ICF hopes that the conference will help contribute to the growth of a culture of sustainable social and environmental impact investing in Austria and beyond.
Whatever you choose to explore, to discover, to enjoy and to share with your fellow conference attendees, I am confident you will come to understand why everything rolls up into this compelling brand: Growing a culture of sustainable and impact investing in Germany.
We look forward to welcoming you at the 3rd Sustainable Investor Summit | Frankfurt 2020.
