You are kindly invited to take part in the 8th Investing for Global Impact – A Power for Good survey
With 302 participants in 2020, Investing for Global Impact – A Power for Good, is the largest global study of impact investing and philanthropy amongst individuals, family offices and foundations. Even if you do not currently take part in impact investing or philanthropy, your views are important to us and we would be delighted if you completed our survey.
