TriLinc Global Managing Partner, Joan Trant, recently attended the Total Impact Conference and participated on a panel – Making Impact with Fixed Income.
The Total Impact Conference is a collaborative event with the Good Capital Project and ImpactPHL. The conference aims to help financial advisors and investors who are seeking to simultaneously achieve financial and social returns. Sustainable investment experts, academics, and development leaders spent two days demonstrating how to integrate impact across asset classes.
The Making Impact with Fixed Income panel focused on municipal bonds, social impact bonds, microfinance, community notes and other fixed income products in the market working to achieve social impact across the fixed income risk-return spectrum.
“ESG and impact requirements not only help mitigate governance, social and environmental risks; they help ensure execution of fiduciary duty,” said Joan Trant, Managing Partner, from the panel.
Joan Trant put forth the idea that investors and advisors can use fixed income investments to build their own impact investment portfolios.
“Fixed income investments that combine rigorous credit analysis, impact intentionality, measurement, and reporting demonstrate how investors can activate all asset classes to construct a strategic and tactical impact investment portfolio.”
TriLinc team members will be speaking at various events in the upcoming weeks. Some events include: the IFC’s 20th Annual Global Private Equity Conference in Association with EMPEA on May 16th, LPGP Connect Private Debt Conference and Women in Private Debt Conference in New York on May 22nd-23rd, the CAIA LA Impact/ESG Investing Summit on June 7th, and the IPA Women’s Initiative Network Forum on June 20th.
