The Next 100 Years of Investments

  • The Caledonian Club 9 Halkin Street London, England, SW1X United Kingdom (map)

We all have a stake in deconstructing poverty and global inequities. These structural inequities are our largest barrier to our progress as a species.

Join us for a private reception to explore the potential of social entrepreneurship and impact investment to create long-term benefit for all, including the generations to come.

Alongside our featured speakers, we invite you to consider how we might best utilize our resources to plan for not one year, not the next 10 years, but rather 100 years from now.
