Episode 5:
Social impact investing:
Addressing global health and wellbeing challenges  

 

The Covid-19 pandemic has had devastating impacts on public health and has disproportionately affected vulnerable communities around the world.  As nations continue to navigate their way through this crisis, the necessity of robust healthcare systems and services have become ever more apparent. While ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being for everyone has traditionally been a public sector responsibility, the private sector can contribute through impactful investments in certain areas.

The value of the fund's assets will go down as well as up. This will cause the value of your investment to fall as well as rise and you may get back less than you originally invested. 

In this session, Jasveet Brar, Deputy Fund Manager, M&G Positive Impact Fund will discuss:

  • The role that impact investors can play in addressing health challenges
  • The wide array of investment opportunities in the better health and wellbeing space
