Our sold-out Investment for Inclusion Forum saw some of South African’s foremost thought leaders on responsible investment engage with each other and a fantastic audience, about inequality and what each player in the investment value chain must do to build a more inclusive economy.

Inequality and poverty are significant threats to South Africa’s long-term sustainability and prosperity. The investment industry, which should be a source of innovation and jobs, and a driver of accountability, is not fulfilling its potential to make South African companies better corporate citizens. Changing this and shifting the focus away from short-term returns requires far more than sustainability reporting. Our Investment for Inclusion Form provided a platform for a bold and candid discussion about the challenges to responsible investment in South Africa, and how we can overcome them.
