Generating Social and Environmental Value Through Capital Investing
One of the most striking trends in the world of investing is the ever-growing interest in making investments that are highly impactful upon both society and the environment as an integral strategy for generating financial returns. These kinds of investments don’t just make more money, they leave a legacy. With contributions from many of the leading expert investors in the field, this handbook outlines the key components to making investments that are catalysts for positive change and lasting influence.
As one of the book’s featured authors, Kris Putnam-Walkerly sets forth the fundamental strategies for making high-impact philanthropic investments in her chapter entitled, “Transformational Giving: Philanthropy as an Investment in Change.” Many investors see philanthropy simply as a way of “giving back,” but Kris debunks this myth by demonstrating how it is, in fact, a crucial asset class that can strengthen a portfolio and effect measurable, meaningful change in the world around us. This chapter highlights the most essential elements of Transformational Giving, such as:
- 11 Core Practices for Effective Philanthropy
- 10 Ways Investors Increase Philanthropic Effectiveness
- Avoiding Delusional Altruism
