“The truth is, in simple terms, all investments have an impact,” states Sonen Capital Founding Partner, Raul Pomares in a speech at this year’s SOCAP conference. Mr. Pomares came to SOCAP to speak about his impact journey, the challenges and opportunities the industry faces, and the actions necessary to meet the moment.
Held in San Francisco this past September, SOCAP gathered investors, entrepreneurs, and social impact leaders to accelerate progress against the world’s toughest challenges. The leaders and firms at SOCAP are strong examples of organizations that seek both competitive financial performance and social and environmental impact.
As an impact investing industry leader, we believe that investing to generate financial returns and lasting social and environmental impact are not only compatible, but also mutually reinforcing objectives.
