How impact investing can tackle commodity dependence and reduce poverty
Date: Wednesday 19 October
Time: 3pm CET
Tackling poverty is a core purpose for many impact investments, including those we make at the Common Fund for Commodities. But how can investors make sure their money genuinely supports people to build more prosperous lives?
We’re running a webinar, following the UN’s International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, to discuss some of the key factors that enable investments to provide long-term economic security for the world’s poorest smallholder farmers.
Guest speaker Professor Jomo Kwame Sundaram will be joining our expert CFC panel, featuring Chief Strategist Andrey Kuleshovand Risk and Portfolio Manager Hector Besong. Professor Jomo has extensive development experience gained in academia and leidership positions at the UN and FAO, and in his current role as Senior Adviser at the Khazanah Research Institute.
They will cover a range of topics including:
The challenges of investing in commodity dependent countries.
How to build partnerships with local commodity businesses and governments that deliver real value.
And examples of our investments that have successfully supported smallholders.
Whether you are an impact investor or seeking to benefit from impact investment, this webinar will provide practical insights that will help your organisation contribute to the eradication of poverty.
