ICV connects hard-to-reach family offices and leading institutional investors to evaluate opportunities that create a social impact beyond a financial return.
We work exclusively with companies and organizations that can achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
We are building a community of extraordinary individuals, who, by virtue of their wealth, knowledge and caring, can advance corporate responsibility, capitalize businesses at significant levels, and influence systemic change in the world. Over the course of hosting more than 20 events, we gathered 2-300 members of family offices and asset management firms that collectively manage more than $2 trillion in assets, yet those in attendance represented less than 3% of our overall investor network.
Family Offices and Institutional Investors: 17,000+
CEOs of Private and Public Companies: 2,700+
Non-government and non-profit: 600+
By forming unlikely partnerships — with academia, government agencies, some of the biggest names in development and large corporations — we identify social innovations that will improve the lives of millions of people around the world.
We deliver diverse content to members of family offices who are allocating capital across multiple asset classes, carefully examining the interconnected risks that may disrupt a well-thought-out portfolio designed for future generations, and improving the wellbeing of humankind through their philanthropy.
We leverage our convening power to transform ideas into impact; to bridge the gap between the political and financial worlds to drive development; and, to educate and inspire all ages to think more creatively about their role as global citizens.
“The moment you discover in life that it’s not about yourself, that it is about investing in others, I think you’re entering a steadier state to be a great leader.”
– Paul Polman
Do Well By Doing Good
A call to action by many to do well by doing good gives us great hope for the future.
Today, we are conscious of the needs of people in all corners of the world and we are conscious of the condition of the planet. Because of this awareness, there has been an emergence of a new kind of collaboration between governments, corporations, investors, philanthropists, civil society leaders and academia to address the social and environmental challenges we face.
More than ever before, the brightest minds are leveraging their collective resources and shared aspirations to build businesses that will reshape traditional industries and achieve impact.
More than ever before, institutional investors and philanthropists are redefining their strategies to be more impact-oriented, and, with this shift, the doors to capital markets are opening.
Over the next twenty years, the world’s wealthiest are expected to transfer more than $30 trillion to their children and grandchildren. With the inheritance of unprecedented wealth comes enormous responsibility. And, to answer the call, this vibrant next generation will focus on social impact as key to their investment decisions.
Now is the time to take global action for global results and to move our people and our planet towards a sustainable future.
There is a more conscious way for businesses to operate and a more conscious way for investors to allocate capital.
