In recent years, the branch of sustainable investing has changed from a niche product to a financial trend. It became more popular, especially when the myth about the ability to pay for returns wore off. But there is still a lack of knowledge about simple investment options and understandable strategies. We want to change that.

With the Impact Finance Forum, we are launching an initiative for the sustainable financial pioneers in Switzerland. The aim of the forum is to support the strategic positioning of a responsible financial center and thus to secure an important contribution for the future of our next generation.

Around 350 thought leaders, designers and specialists meet to enter into a constructive exchange. Where are there still unresolved challenges and which factors will be increasingly important in addition to capital in the future? We want to develop solutions to strengthen the Swiss financial system in the long term and at the same time protect the environment.
