SOCIAL FINANCE FORUM: WHERE PROFIT MEETS PURPOSE

The way people and organizations invest is changing fast. New financial technologies are simplifying investing and giving individuals greater control over their money. At the same time, a new kind of activist investor is emerging: These investors demand investments that drive social progress or accelerate the shift to a clean economy – while still creating a profit.

Canada is at the forefront of this financial revolution. Canadians have $4 billion in responsible investments and the market is growing fast. Now, the country that created peacekeeping is once again reaching out to the world with new kinds of investment in sustainable development and clean infrastructure.

What do these financial shifts mean for investors? How can social entrepreneurs and clean technology companies capitalize on them? And will they create a fairer and greener economy?

The Social Finance Forum is the place to find out. Now in its 10th year, the Forum is Canada’s leading gathering of impact investors, social entrepreneurs and social finance professionals.

  • How new financial technologies are changing who investors are, how they invest – and what they invest in.

The Social Finance Forum provided me the perfect opportunity to meet like-minded individuals with whom I could explore my passion and ideas. I met truly remarkable individuals and landed my current job with Corporate Knights after sharing research I did during my master's degree with their CEO.
