Date: May 10-12, 2016

Location: Baltimore, MD, USA

Speaker: Jan Piercy, Senior Advisor, Enclude

Topic: Fair Financial Services: Investing in New Models

Description: Financial instability lies at the heart of so many social problems, from the economic immobility of the working poor to region-wide investment deserts. Existing financial tools just aren’t working for huge swaths of the population, and these gaps come at a huge cost. What alternative financial models and tools might reward the hard work and resourcefulness of our citizens? This session will explore the ways impact investing, combined with fair financial services, can provide the economic stability our communities need to feel proud, self-reliant and secure.

Seizing the Momentum is a call to action for the impact investing community to take advantage of the latest investment opportunities and innovations that can make real progress in solving intractable problems.
