LuxFLAG Breakfast Seminar - Taking social finance to the next level


LuxFLAG’s next breakfast seminar will take place under the topic ‘Taking social finance to the next level’, hosted by KPMG Luxembourg on 18 September 2018.

Access to health care, affordable housing and education are fundamental to tackle poverty, reduce inequalities and empower people which in the end boosts economies to an overall benefit. How can the socially-related Sustainable Development Goals be addressed through finance? What are the main opportunities in choosing financial structures to achieve and scale social outcomes? What role do social bonds play as an innovative tool to support sustainable development? How can the social value added and impact be measured?
