The Global Impact Forum (GIF) is an industry-wide member forum hosted by Pensions for Purpose to facilitate meaningful industry discussions on how to embed social and environmental impacts at a strategic level, including in governance discussions, to encourage the flow of capital towards investments that have a positive impact.

The forum operates on a quarterly cycle of:

  • All-stakeholder events, consisting of a keynote presentation, followed by small group breakout discussions.
  • Peer-to-peer meetings for pension funds and other asset owners to share experiences, discuss challenges and learn from each other.
  • Morning coffee/afternoon tea discussions relevant to this agenda.
  • Training opportunities.
  • Newsletters, signposting relevant updates, content and events.

Forthcoming GIF events are shown opposite, along with the most recent relevant content. (You can also see a calendar of all Pensions for Purpose events here.)


"Once again this was an informative and useful discussion sharing thoughts on one of the key areas on the sustainability agenda. Both speakers were excellent and they diligently covered a range of questions that were presented to them." Delegate - asset owner only  event. 

"Excellent, informative and well-attended forum, covering many impotant aspects of the impact investing debatefor both asset owners and asset managers." Delegate - all-stakeholder event.
