The IFGI Knowledge Platform
Philanthropy and Impact Investing mean a lot of different things to different people. As a think tank on this subject, we explore how Family Offices, Foundations and Organisations approach impact investing and philanthropy and identify key trends.
Individuals, families and their organisations are an established driving force in the financial world. Today they are ever more active and taking increased personal responsibility for the allocation of their savings and capital. They have an enhanced sense of purpose, the necessary passion, and the appropriate time horizon to enable systemic, sustainable change. Tackling the biggest challenges of our planet through philanthropy and impact investing also requires mobilising the ‘new generation,’ aligning values across family members and purposefully engaging the disengaged.
GIST is the founding partner of the annual ‘Investing for Global Impact’ report, the leading knowledge platform to broaden understanding, identify trends, help mainstream impact investments and provides a ‘peer-to-peer’ benchmark for people engaged in the space. Our report is a platform to engage the public as well as the social impact and philanthropic community around the globe.
