Social Investor Group Meeting

February 27, 2013 to February 27, 2013
Time: 9:00 AM
Location: Antwerp, Belgium

       We would like to invite you to an interim meeting of the SPTF social investor group on Wednesday, February 27. The meeting will be hosted by Incofin Investment Management in Antwerp, Belgium.

       In between the SPTF annual meetings in Jordan and Panama, we propose to take stock of concrete actions we are all taking towards implementing client protection and other social performance practices on the ground. We will follow up on commitments we all made in Jordan (see here) and on investor efforts to introduce reasonable covenants and implement the code of conduct against overindebtedness. The ALINUS action group plans a working session to contribute to fleshing out indicators on the Universal Standards for Social Performance Management. The PRI will share results of the first round of reporting on implementation of the Principles for Investors in Inclusive Finance, to which many of you have contributed. Given increased attention for impact investment, we also intend to dedicate a session to this topic to stimulate cross-learning between the microfinance investment and broader impact investment fields.

       Like last year, the social investor meeting has been scheduled back-to-back with the CGAP DFI consultation on Responsible Finance, which is being hosted by BIO in Brussels this time.  We warmly invite DFI representatives to join the SPTF Social Investor Group meeting. In addition, we plan to invite other institutional investors to facilitate exchanges among the direct and indirect investors.  RSVP to Laura Foose, laurafoose@sptf.info.
