Building Portfolios with Impact: A Workshop on Creating and Managing Impact Investment Strategies

The Hong Kong Jockey Club Programme on Social Innovation and the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) Business School will a host a special workshop to engage impact investors, NGO executives, family offices, and other stakeholders.

Gertner, Joel F. Gemunder Professor of Strategy and Finance and John Edwardson Faculty Director for the Rustandy Center for Social Sector Innovation at Chicago Booth; and Priya Parrish, Chief Investment Officer of Impact Engine and Impact Investor in Residence for the Rustandy Center for Social Sector Innovation at Chicago Booth.
