Investing in Food Systems from an Agroecology Perspective | July 18, 2018

Transform Finance Investor Network Webinar Recordings show

Summary: Agriculture has always been a mainstay of impact investing. But what would a more transformative approach to financing a fair future for agriculture look like? Jen Astone, Executive Director of the Swift Foundation, set out to answer that question as she reviewed Swift’s holdings in agriculture and considered the role of philanthropy, impact investing, and traditional capital in supporting the food system. On this TFIN webinar, Jen helps us understand the frame of agroecology and the relevance and role of foundations' patient capital in financing a transformative approach, comparing different investments and investable opportunities through this lens.
