Impact Across Asset Classes

Maximize Impact + Maximize Return = Smarter Money

Learn how to deploy capital to make a positive impact while still maximizing returns

Conference Overview

Watershed Capital Group is pleased to host the Impact Capitalism Summit on April 21-22, 2015 at the Union League Club of Chicago.

The Summit is an excellent forum to develop relationships, to gain insight into successful strategies across industry segments and to learn from leaders who are mainstreaming impact investing. A new model of value creation is emerging deploying capital in strategies that leverage the inherent link between natural, social and financial capital.

Over 300 family offices, asset managers, and fund managers representing over $150 Bn in investable assets will explore the current state and trends of this dynamic sector.

The Impact Capitalism Summit will feature a variety of industry leaders with panel discussions on specific asset classes including private equity, public equity, private debt, public debt and direct deals. Presenters, LP's, and strategic partners will also be able to schedule targeted, one-on-one breakout sessions. The conference provides a rich environment for learning and business development opportunities.

Conference Format

Executives from fund managers across asset classes will showcase their businesses to an audience of more than 250 prospective financial, institutional and strategic investors.

Fund Presentations: Public and private fund managers will present overviews of their respective businesses regarding impact and return, followed by sector-specific panel sessions.
