Nisaa Jetha, representing Impact-for-SDGs, delivered an emerging new investment thesis at the World Impact Investing Forum. At the core of her keynote address lay the proposition that strategic investments in safeguarding the global commons serve as a pivotal mechanism for catalyzing global transformation and mobilizing financial resources towards the attainment of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This thesis is predicated on the premise that nurturing a resilient and flourishing natural ecosystem not only facilitates the achievement of climate and sustainable development targets but also unlocks significant economic prospects.

She highlighted how, in the context of stakeholder capitalism, asset owners and decision-makers are recognizing the importance of integrating environmental and social considerations into their business strategies. This approach not only protects the global commons but also creates lasting value for shareholders and stakeholders. The investment framework emphasized the alignment between inclusive capitalism and responsible governance, emphasizing the need for economic incentives and safeguards. The pivotal role of responsible governance was underscored as a driver for sustainable transformation.

The forum brought together a distinguished gathering of professionals from leading institutions such as BlackRock, TS Lombard, University of Oxford, European Investment Bank (EIB), UBS, The Global Steering Group for Impact Investment (GSG), Bridges Fund Management, Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change & the Environment (London School of Economics), European Commission, British International Investment, UNDP, Said Business School, Generation Investment Management, Citi Global Wealth, IDP Foundation, and Sustainalytics to name a few.



The World Impact Investing Forum served as a platform for collaboration and knowledge exchange among professionals dedicated to advancing impact investing. With a focus on finance for good, the event showcased the collective commitment to leveraging finance to address global challenges and create positive societal and environmental impact.
