‘Invest in Life: social investments for the future’
This seminar, generously hosted by Allen & Overy LLP, featured short presentations from Arcubus, our microfinance partners (Opportunity International, Five Talents UK, the Microloan Foundation and Microfinance Without Borders), Geoff Burnand (CEO of Investing for Good), Tim Jones (CEO of Allia, the Social Profit Society). The aim of the seminar was to explore what social investment really means, whether there is a business case for it and how institutions and individuals can get involved. We welcomed a great audience of CSR managers, philanthropists and those interested in microfinance and social investment. The atmosphere of enthusiasm around social investment was palpable; Arcubus is delighted to be able to offer a real social investment opportunity to microfinance enthusiasts.
