Why US Investors should Invest in Europe Now: Innovative Financing Models are Generating Profits & Impact

A presentation about the innovative investment models the European Investment Bank together with the EU Commission have established to attract private monies for public good AND to help investors generate profits & measurable impact.

Investors increasingly seek investment opportunities with verifiable societal impact (e.g. green or social). In the years to come, we can expect the importance of the sector to grow further as globally, USD 24 trillion will be transferred from the generation of baby boomers to millennials, who are on average much more inclined to invest “with impact”. To provide investors with such investment opportunities, the public and private sectors can strategically cooperate.

● Kerstin Jorna, Deputy Director-General for Department for Economic & Financial Affairs at EUROPEAN COMMISSION
● Duncan Caird, Managing Director, Head of Infrastructure, Energy and Export Finance, Americas, HSBC
