Investors play a crucial role in the transition to a new economy, providing the capital needed to realise real and profound change. The investment choices they make can have a positive impact on our planet and on society, and at the same time safeguard their chances of solid long-term investment returns.

Listen to Hans Stegeman and Ulrika Hasselgren discuss the role of private capital in resetting the economy.

Part 4 – The role of private capital
In this fourth and last episode of our series Reset the economy, Hans Stegeman and Ulrika Hasselgren, Partner at sustainable intelligence company Arabesque and co-founder of Ethix SRI Advisors, discuss the tools we have to bring about a system change and the role of private capital therein:

  • What is the biggest problem in the reset? Transparency, liquidity, regulation?
  • What is needed, from an investor perspective, to make impact investing the new standard
  • How can we transition from doing less bad to regenerative/positive investments?
  • What should be the contribution of impact investing to a reset of our economy?
For impact investing to become the new normal, we need proof that intentional investing is doing what it set out to do. And for that we need data transparency and consistency.
