Impact Investments are investments made with intention to generate positive, measurable social and environmental impact alongside financial return. Impact investments explore not only a traditional risk-and-return spectrum but also the third dimension of impact in making investment decisions.
Impact investing is considered to be an investment approach "beyond ESG" as well as an important tool to achieve SDGs.
With the ongoing global Covid-19 pandemic, investors are refocusing on investment sustainability and positive social and/or environmental effects, which means that Impact Investing is needed more than ever.
CFA Society Japan organized 5-serial seminars on "Impact Investing" from this May, and then held the first 3 seminars, resulting in 819 registered/587 participated members. This webinar is specially developed for CFA APAC society members as an additional session to the serial seminars.
Ms. Fumi Sugeno from SIIF, will share the latest trends and insights on the global Impact Investing market and Japanese cases studies.
Fumi currently oversees businesses and leads investments in new impact investment funds, products and intermediaries at the Japan Social Innovation & Investment Foundation (SIIF). Fumi is an investment committee member of an impact investment fund focused on the future of work, childcare and elderly care support, which was established with Shinsei Bank Group and Mizuho Bank. Prior to joining SIIF, Fumi was an ESG analyst and a business consultant at the Japan Research Institute supporting Japanese corporations to initiate impact businesses. She started her career as International NGO staff working for education in rural China. Fumi holds a BA from University of Tokyo and MA in International Affairs from Columbia University.
