mallowstreet Impact Investing Indaba


Delegates are expected to attend the full event. We do understand that this is a time commitment in diaries. Please do let us know if you need to step away for a call/meeting.

The mallowstreet Impact Investing Indaba* will bring together some of the industry’s biggest influencers to hear a selection of interactive keynote presentations. These will be interspersed with five Investment Masterclass sessions which will cover how investment capital can generate social and environmental impact as well as financial returns.

This event is FREE to attend for investment decision makers and their advisers and is accredited for CPD points by the Pensions Management Institute (PMI).

*An Indaba (pronounced in-dar-bah) is an important conference held by the izinDuna (principal people) of the Zulu or Xhosa people. The term comes from a Zulu language word meaning "business" or "matter".

  3. Money as a Force for Good

    We face the wicked challenge of maintaining economic growth whilst addressing the challenges of climate change, biodiversity loss and social justice. Currently the health of our planet is not on anyone's profit and loss or balance sheet. We will only focus and prioritise our resources to walk the existential path we are on once it is. Investing in nature can capture the trillion-dollar economic opportunity to save the world and enjoy our modern lives. Can money be redirected to be a force for good? Driving prosperity for both people and the planet?

  13. Bringing the "S" in ESG to Life for Institutional Investors

    As the world increasingly looks towards a net-zero agenda, it is imperative that that transition is both socially inclusive and just. It is mutually important to address both the consequences of climate change and the social impact of a transition to a net-zero carbon economy. Thinking deeply about the “s” in ESG is not just part of a prudent risk management approach, it can unlock a range of exciting investable opportunities in the UK and internationally.


    Social considerations are often seen as siloed from environmental concerns, yet a deeper focus on the ‘S’ can act as a multiplier for advancing the ‘E’ and the ‘G’.

    Sarah will explore how investors can accelerate their understanding of the ‘social’ aspect in investment decision-making and how pension schemes can use the lens of a Just Transition and a place-focused approach to boost their positive impact by addressing social issues whilst delivering a market-rate financial return.psis to follow.

  19. Creating a Common Language to Rewire the Earth

    Do you think if our economy was more closely tied to a different set of values - not just profit and growth, but the protection of people and the planet - that we'd see sustainable change more quickly? 

    In this talk, we explore how the power of investors’, consumers’ and employees’ sustainability priorities can be harnessed to more effectively drive action across the financial markets. By giving citizens a voice, are creating a business case for sustainable action; allowing companies to grow, while being properly rewarded for saving the planet.  

    Launching a mass public engagement tool early next year is a not-for-profit that aims to enable future generations to live in a world where their sustainability priorities are valued; where they understand the true impact of their actions; and where businesses benefit from doing the right thing.
