We invite you to participate in US SIF’s 2017 annual conference, A New Climate for Investing in Impact.

About the Theme

In 2017, after eight years of President Obama's leadership, a new administration is taking office, promising to roll back numerous federal initiatives relating to health care, climate change and other sustainability initiatives. 

At the same time, public interest in sustainable and impact investing has reached new highs.  Today, the managers of every one in five dollars of professionally managed assets in the United States take environmental, social and governance issues into account as they manage these portfolios, and investment professionals increasingly are expected to demonstrate their awareness of how these ESG factors affect company and portfolio financial performance. The growing interest in sustainable and impact investing can be seen around the globe as well. 

These contradictory trends—which present both challenges and opportunities—are creating a new climate for investing in impact.
