These and other questions on the minds of Family Offices, Asset Owners and Wealth Managers will be addressed at TBLI CONFERENCE USA 2014 in 7 sessions specifically around impact investing:

Blending public and private finance for global access to health care, empowering women entrepreneurs through gender lens investment approaches, philanthropy investing as the new 'giving' - are just a few themes that will be discussed.
