CFA UK Climate Podcast
Audio 30 minutes Episode 7: Climate change through the eyes of an impact investor
In the seventh episode of our Climate Change podcast, we talk impact investing with Maria (Largey) Smith, Head of the Financial Institutions sector team at CDC Group. John Teehan, CFA Portfolio Manager at Redwheel (formerly known as RWC partners) delves into world of development investment solutions with Maria. Learn how impact investors operate today and their proposed solutions to reduce the impact of climate change tomorrow.
I chose this episode on impact investing. Timely for us as we are preparing our Community networking meetup on October 26th - where you will meet our member Raisa Beliard from BII talking to our community Champion Elaine Xu on some of the issues and approaches the DFIs take to make an impact and invest in the developing world.
If we have members from the impact investment space - we have so much to learn from you. Do share on:
What would you say are the top challenges that you face - local currency risks or regulations, or access to data and information or measuring the impactb or other?Do you think we will see the convergence to a set of principles of making impact investments that will enable more of the private capital to go into developing markets? What needs to happen?
Look forward to your conversation here
