The United Nations Association of Australia (Victorian Division) is holding a seminar, ‘Impact Investing: Revolutionising capital markets for greater societal gains’, on Thursday 9 October in Melbourne.

Held in partnership with National Australia Bank as part of the UNAA’s Sustainability Leadership Series, this seminar will highlight the challenges and opportunities associated with this innovative way to invest capital for social as well as financial returns.

The seminar seeks to cover how this emerging sector has evolved and its key players, from capital providers to fund managers, financial intermediaries, social enterprises and non-profit organisations. It will also address how impact investing differs from traditional philanthropic giving and how it relates to the work of the government in addressing social issues.
