NANTUCKET, Mass., May 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading family offices, foundations, and institutional investors will be taking a break from their summer vacation to be in Nantucket July 15-16, 2015 for a one of a kind event for the Island. The Summit participants will take a broad and deep dive into taking a portfolio approach toward Impact Investing. The purpose of the Impact Capitalism Summit Nantucket is to explore SmarterMoney+TM, how to achieve return and impact across asset classes. The Summit in Nantucket will include ample time for informal networking and vibrant roundtable discussions followed by networking dinners on both days at exclusive venues including the Great Harbor Yacht Club.
A few of the groups supporting the Summit include:
- Athena Capital
- Bain Capital
- Blue Haven
- Confluence Philanthropy
- Social Finance
- Tiger 21
- Transform Finance
- Trillium Asset Management
- Wealth and Giving Forum.
The Summit in Nantucket is a sister event to the Annual Impact Capitalism Summit in Chicago that took place in April (see video). The 2015 Summit in Chicago brought together over 300 family offices, foundations, asset managers, and fund managers representing the largest gathering of investable assets focused on the sector.
"I am head of a family office and new to Impact Investing. It was invaluable to attend the last Summit. In a day and a half, I was able to learn about what is happening in various asset classes and to meet other family offices who had experience in the sector," said a family office participant from the 2014 Summit.
Although the Impact Capitalism Summit is primarily an educational event, attendees are limited to accredited investors.
