The fallacy of opportunistic impact investing by Uli Grabenwarter

Igniter's talk #2

A decade after the term Impact Investing has been coined at a Rockefeller Forum in New York, the debate on the trade-off between impact and financial return hasn’t stopped. But are we asking the right questions? And are we ready to admit to our true answers. What impact are we after as an investment community? How are we going to decide on any trade-off before we have decided what we really want to obtain? Maybe it isn’t impact after all...
