The Trillion Dollar Challenge

A New Business Model for Investing in Social Impact and Development

As the world turns its attention to New York City during the week of the General Debate of the UN General Assembly, New America and Concordia invite you to a live webcast with U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken on making long-term investments for social impact.

We're witnessing a paradigm shift in how the world finances solutions to global challenges. As development institutions, the private sector, and large funds are mobilizing capital for their own objectives, large asset owners and policymakers are also recognizing how strategic investments in social impact can reduce volatility, foster positive social outcomes, and enhance financial returns over the long-term.

On September 19, join New America's Bretton Woods II program, U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Antony Blinken, and leaders from the investment and business community at the 2016 Concordia Summit for a live webcast on how making investments that further the UN Sustainable Development Goals is not only the right thing to do, but the smart thing to do for long-term investors.

Starting at 1:30 PM EST, view the live webcast here.
