Context 

Throughout the year, the finance and sustainable initiative (FSI) organizes events, webinars, and workshops to allow the Quebecois community to gather, discuss topical issues and move forward together towards sustainable finance in Quebec.

Description 

Finance Montreal's Sustainable Finance Initiative is offering a webinar in collaboration with impak Finance to demystify impact investing and provide an overview of this type of investment, which is of growing interest.

Combining notions of intentionality, additionality and measurement, impact investing combines financial returns with social and environmental benefits. In the company of our speakers, you will learn how to differentiate responsible investment and impact investment, get to know the key players in this ecosystem better and understand the scope of impact projects supported by investors.
