Webinar: Voices of the Next Generation in Impact Investing

By the year 2052, it is estimated that Millennials will engage in the largest intergenerational wealth transfer of our time —at a value of $41 trillion in the United States alone. Numerous reports have cited Millennials as the generation most willing to trade financial return for greater social impact. However, these same reports find that Millennials are more conservative and skeptical than their parents when it comes to engaging in the financial market. Despite this skepticism, this next generation is reported to be actually more willing to accept higher risk profiles or receive lower returns if it results in positive or sustainable impact. Many view their investments as a way to express their social, political or environmental values. 

Join us with moderator Jed Emerson, Founder of the Blended Value Group, in conversation with Sam Bonsey, Director of Operations, Liesel Pritzker Simmons, Co-Founder & Principal of Blue Haven Initiative, and Margot Seigle, Core Team Member of ReGenerative Finance, to explore the variety of ideas and approaches to impact investing against the backdrop of some of the recent reports that have been written about the Millennial vision and the future of philanthropy. There will be ample opportunity for Q & A discussion.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE?

Participation in this event is open to grantmakers and invited guest speakers only, and is not open to grantseeking organizations or investment firms seeking to fundraise.
