Impact Investing in Conflict Regions
Julie Hammerman, JLens & Lens Investments
Today we face an unprecedented level of human conflict around the world. At the same time, impact investing is increasingly used to address a wide variety of global challenges. This session will explore the use of impact investing to heal divides, alleviate conflict, and created shared purposes. While conflict regions are often considered high-risk and areas to avoid by investors, there is a critical role to be played by thoughtful impact investors and social purpose entrepreneurs to lay the economic foundation for conflict resolution and peace.
