This blog summarises November’s place-based impact investing event, attended by 90 industry professionals, ranging from pension funds to other asset owner representatives.

The event was divided into two sessions: to start the proceedings Sarah Forster of The Good Economy, and Mark Hall of the Impact Investing Institute covered the new Place-Based Impact Investing Network they have been working on. Followed by a slot on reporting the impact performance of a fund with Andrew Hall of Greater Manchester Pension Fund (GMPF). Andrew set out how GMPF’s Local Investment Portfolio was the first UK pension fund to undergo the reporting process, and considered the implications for other pension funds.
