Amit Bhatia
11.20-12:00 Purpose of Investment- From Divergent to Convergent Economic Goals

Is impact investment dispelling the myth that one cannot do good while doing well? The growing impact movement provides increasing proof that impact business models can drive profits and that the leading businesses of the future will profitably pursue a double bottom-line. How do we get impact thinking to spread across the global economy?

Amit Bouri (GIIN)
12.20-13:00 Disrupting Allocations for Impact

To unlock private capital for public good, we must disrupt how wealth and asset managers allocate money to asset classes. We must also disrupt how businesses allocate budgets to products and strategies. Finally, we must support such disruption with policy and public opinion. This panel will discuss how can we disrupt allocations for impact.Moderator: Michele Giddens (Bridges Ventures)
Panel: Urs Wietlisbach (Partners Group), Cristina Penteado (Blue Orange Capital), David Jeffrey, Eric Rice (BlackRock)
13:00- 14:30 Networking Lunch
14:30- 16:00 Forum Rotation #1

Forum 1A Societal Values: From Individuals to Commons

Does the change in societal values, from individuals to commons, reflect a permanent shift? If so, how will this shift express itself in consumption, employment and investment? What will its effect be on businesses? How do we harness it to drive our economic system to optimize risk, return and impact?Moderator: John Simpkins (The Aspen Institute)
Lead Discussants: Carmen Correa (Pro Mujer), Jean-Louis Bancel, Marcos Souza, Elias Masilela
Forum 1B Purpose of Business: From Shareholder to Stakeholder

Do the new impact economics take businesses back to the time when they needed to have a purpose in order to benefit from limited liability, as was the case in the UK following the Bubble Act of 1720. Have we allowed the justification for benefiting from limited liability to erode over time? Is serving all stakeholders, including customers, employees, society and the planet, a major reversion of the Milton Friedman theory that the sole purpose of business is profit?

Moderator: Cliff Prior (Big society capital)
Lead Discussants: Luis Gallo (Estrategias Corporativas), Sizwe Nxasana (Sifiso Learning Group), Cyrille Langendorff (Credit Coopertif), Carla Duprat (InterCement)

Forum 1C The Underserved: From Fringe to Focus

Have the underserved become a central focus of our system? Leading figures, such as the Pope, have rejected the trickle-down theory, that economic growth alone will lift the poor out of poverty. As the concept of inclusive growth, business and capital spreads, the underserved are getting unprecedented attention. How do we turn the underserved into a lasting focus of our economic system? How do we lead governments to make them a policy priority? How does the impact economy bridge the gap between the haves and have-nots?

Moderator: Royston Braganza (Grameen Capital)
Lead Discussants: Dominique Lesaffre (SIDI SCA), Rangimarie Price (Amokura), John McCarthy (Tindall Foundation), Farhad Reza (Build Bangladesh), Georgia Pessoa (Humanize),
Björn Vennema

Forum 1D Aid, Development Banks and Philanthropies

The world‘s population is growing. How do we ensure there‘s enough food, water, education, health and prosperity in 2050? Official aid organizations, development banks and philanthropists are moving towards new and more effective models, such as pay for success, that are capable of attracting private sector capital and bringing systemic improvement in emerging countries. What does this imply for them as leading agents of change?

Moderator: Laurie Spengler (Enclude Capital)
Lead Discussants: Phil Stevens (DFID), Yvonne Bakkum, Maria Angeles Leon (Open Value Foundation), Erica Barbosa Vargas (The J W McConnell Family Foundation),
Changbo Fu

Forum 1F Technology & Media: For Better or for Worse

Are the tech and media revolutions allies or opponents in bringing about impact economies? Perfect information creates perfect markets. Technology and media have democratized information and disintermediated markets. Though they bring new challenges, such as fake news, ills are no longer able to hide behind walls of secrecy. How can we use them to underpin impact economies?

Moderator: Adva Saldinger
Lead Discussants: Eliane Trindade (Media), Ghaida Zoabi (ACTO, College of Management), Tim West (Fable Bureau), Chani Guyot (Red / Accion), Vibeka Mair (Responsible Investor)

Forum 2A The New Finance Paradigm: Risk-Return-Impact

Financial thinking has evolved from a focus on returns in the 19th century to risk-return in the 20th century, is it now shifting to risk-return-impact? Investment is increasingly being driven by responsible, sustainable and impact-oriented values. How do we ensure impact performance, alongside financial performance, and what are the challenges to overcome?

Moderator: Fran Seegull (US Impact Investing Alliance)
Lead Discussant: Maria Jose Montero (FIS Ameris), Steve Wang (Bosera Asset Management), Danniel Izzo (Vox Capital), Juan Bernal (CaixaBank Asset Management)

Forum 2C Impact & Entrepreneurial Models

Are entrepreneurs the driving force of the impact revolution? Are they the ones who will take us to a circular economy, help us to improve learning outcomes, create smart cities and scale new business models to tackle other social and environmental challenges? How does achieving impact at scale affect entrepreneurial business models? How do we drive the inclusion of impact in entrepreneurial thinking, across the globe?

Moderator: Cliff Prior (Big society capital)
Lead Discussants: Thomas Belazis (Rockefeller Foundation), Randall Kempner (ANDE, The Aspen Institute), Tarun Mehta (Ather Energy), Thomaz Srougi, Belen Bagnati

Forum 2D Shifting the focus: Activities to Outcomes

Is shifting government and philanthropic focus from activities to outcomes helpful to the effective delivery of impact? The UK government has created Outcome Funds (Life Chances Fund, Fair Chances Fund, etc.) in order to attract risk capital and social entrepreneurs. This has helped to achieve improved social outcomes, such as reduced recidivism and homelessness and improved elderly care. The focus on measurable outcomes enables governments and philanthropists to reorient limited resources towards effective programs and crowd in private capital. How do we accelerate the shift in focus from activities to outcomes?

Moderator: Tracy Palandjian (Social Finance US)
Lead Discussants: Andrea Phillipe (Maycomb Capital), Brace Young (Arabesque), Mara Airoldi (BSG,University of Oxford), Maria Laura Tinelli (Acrux Partners), Mika Pyykko, Daniel Uribe

Forum 2E Linear to Circular, Green & Blue Economy

The world population is growing and this is affecting the environment. To ensure there’s enough food, water and prosperity in 2050, we need to switch from a linear to a circular economy. Can we truly eliminate non-recyclable waste? Can manufacturers design products to be reusable? For example, can all electrical devices be designed in such a way that they can be repaired. Will we be able to recycle all plastic into pellets for making new plastic products. Will we treat our surroundings responsibly? Can we prevent litter on streets or in the natural environment? Can Impact Economies become truly circular? For too long we have exploited nature as a resource, considering and even documenting land as a factor of production. We must realize that we are not independent of nature or existence. Our existence is interdependent on nature. We are destroying the ecosystems that serve as the basis of life and of all value creation. Can we ever treat Nature as real wealth over Money?

Moderator: John Simpkins (The Aspen Institute)
Lead Discussants: Albert Tseng (Dao Foods International), Andrés Pesce, Marilou van Golstein

Forum 2F Big Corporate Impact Models

Are big companies capable of delivering much greater positive impact? More than 50% of Fortune 500 corporations and an even greater proportion of the largest companies across the world (85% of the S&P500, 99% of the FTSE100, and 100% of the CAC40, BSE500 & JSE Top40) report on ESG goals. What innovative impact models can corporations adopt in increasing their positive impact? How do they accelerate the transition to delivering both impact and financial performance?

Moderator: Judith Aidoo (Caswell Capital Partners Limited)
Lead Discussants: Elizabeth Boggs-Davidson (UNDP), Ran Grodecki (Bridges Israel), Rodrigo Villar (Co-Founder & General Director), Shannon Music (VIVA Idea), Chul Woo Moon (South Korea NAB,SUNGKYUNWAN University)

13:00 – 14:30 Lunch
14:30 – 16:00 Forum Rotation #3

Forum 3A Impact Measurement & Integrity

What is the role of impact measurement in preserving the integrity of the impact sector? Will Impact Weighted Financial Accounts that reflect product, employment and environmental impact, together with financial performance, become the new baseline for corporate accounting? How do we achieve acceptance and implementation?

Moderator: Clara Barby
Lead Discussants: Rob Zochowski (Harvard Business School), Neil Gregory (IFC International Finance Corpn.), Roberto Artavia (Viva Trust), Mauricio Samper (SEAF Colombia Agribusiness Fund), Michael Etzel (The Bridgespan Group)

Forum 3B Public Sector 2.0: Government as an Impact Catalyst

Are incentives and new social impact corporate forms crucial to the growth of impact investment? Experience in implementing new policies (Opportunity Zones – USA, Green investments – Holland, 90/10 pension funds – France, Social Investment Tax Relief and Outcomes Funds– UK) provides valuable evidence for innovative policy making. How should government support the impact movement?

Moderator: Fran Seegull (US Impact Investing Alliance)
Lead Discussants: Sebastian Welisiejko (Govt. of Argentina), Georgia Efremova, Gautier Uchiyama, Rosemary Addis (Impact Strategist), Beto Scretas (Instituto de Cidadania Empresarial)

Forum 3C Impact Wholesalers: Facilitators & Champions

Are impact capital wholesalers that provide catalytic capital for impact-driven investment funds key for driving the growth of impact investment? The UK has released £400 million of dormant bank accounts to establish Big Society Capital. Portugal has created an impact wholesaler, with EU funding support. Japan is releasing $4.5 billion, over five years, from dormant bank accounts to an entity tackling social issues. South Korea has announced the creation of a $300 million impact wholesaler. Several other countries are considering. doing so. How can we accelerate the establishment of impact wholesalers across the world?

Moderator: John Simpkins (The Aspen Institute)
Lead Discussants: Uli Grabenwarter (EIF), Andreas Eggenberg (Masisa), Alejandro Preusche (Latin American Impact Fund of Funds), Raul Pomares (Sonen Capital)

Forum 3D Pay for Outcomes Models

Is paying for outcomes a key tool of impact investment? Social impact bonds (SIB) and development impact bonds (DIB) are based on outcome payments. To date, governments have almost invariably paid for outcomes, but new independently-managed outcomes funds are becoming significant players. Are they the way to scale pay-for-success in systematically tackling major social challenges such as education in emerging countries? How do they attract substantial philanthropic and aid capital to bring about systemic improvement?

Moderator: Tracy Palandjian (Social Finance US)
Lead Discussants: Maha Keramane, Masataka Uo (Japan NAB,Japan Fundraising Association), Yaron Neudorfer (Social Finance Israel), Shanthakumar Bannirchelvam (Global Impact Partners), Antonio Miguel (MAZE Impact), Jared Lee

Forum 3F Creating an Impact Movement

As the idea of doing good while doing well spreads, how do we create a powerful movement around it? How should the GSG lead in creating this movement? What should its priorities be? What specific actions should it take? Beyond Tipping Point 2020, which is looking eminently achievable now, how does creating an impact movement relate to the SDG’s?

Moderator: Judith Aidoo (Caswell Capital Partners Limited)
Lead Discussants: Carolina Biquard (Fundacio Compromiso), Eyal Gever (Artist), Sarah Gordon (Impact Investing Institute), Lindsay Smalling (SOCAP), Hamdiya Ismaila (General Manager at Venture Capital Trust Fund), Tony Goldner
