Sustainable Investing, by Arnaud Apffel (April 2015)
(Organized by the MFE section)
Sustainable & Responsible Investing is today becoming mainstream, with a theoretical $47 trillion of assets signed to the UN-PRI principles. It is however still little known by the general public, and often misperceived.
Whether you want to know more about it or to understand how finance can benefit society, whether you want to invest yourself or raise funds for your startup, this presentation should be relevant to you.
