From Back Street To Wall Street: Creating Inclusive Capital Markets For All

Special Interest Speaker Series

Since the term 'Impact Investing' was coined in 2008, over $114 billion worth of investment has been mobilized globally into addressing the pressing social and environmental needs with a business angle. One of the key figures in pioneering the movement was the Founder of Impact Investment Exchange (IIX), Durreen Shahnaz, WG'95. IIX is the market leader in impact investing operating an active equity crowd funding platform, a social stock exchange and creating innovative, listed fixed income securities such as the Women's Livelihood Bond. At the NY Wharton Club gathering, Durreen will be discussing IIX's role in building the impact investing space in Asia and beyond. She will also discuss key trends in the market in mobilizing and mainstreaming impact investing capital and the US market in all this.

Durreen is the 2014 recipient of the Joseph Wharton Social Impact award, 2016 recipient of the Asia Society’s Asia Game Changer Awards, 2017 recipient of the Oslo Business for Peace Award and 2017 recipient of Market Builder of the Year Award (along with IIX) from Global Social Impact Investment Steering Group.
