Family offices are the true trailblazers when it comes to impact investing, one of the fastest-growing areas of the investment business aiming to deploy capital to address global societal challenges. The NYU Stern Center for Sustainable Business together with Helped Hope has gathered a panel of family offices to share their wisdom, experience and insights. On Thursday, November 21, 2019, attendees will hear their definition of impact investing, why they do it and what they see as their financial and social return. Discussions will include investments across asset classes, geographies and vehicles, and cover innovative techniques such as program-related investments (PRIs), mission-related investments (MRIs) and blended rate investments.

The event is co-sponsored by Stern MBA student clubs: Private Equity/Venture Capital (PE/VC), Social Impact & Sustainability Association (SISA), and Stern Investment Management and Research (SIMR).

Panelists will include:
  • Elise Bernal, principal, Bernal Family
  • Adi Divgi, family member and CIO, EA Global
  • Richard Lipkin, managing director, Easton Capital, and co-founder, Cavendish Impact Foundation
  • John Parker, family member and vice president, Charles H. Hood Foundation, and founder, Springhood Ventures
