About the Forum

The Forum will focus on how social investors view China's social challenges and opportunities, and how they harness impact investments to direct them towards social and environmental issues that lead to financial returns, balanced with positive social change. China’s First Social Investment Forum follows on the success of the First Hong Kong Social Investment Forum held in 2010 which saw over 120 investors from across the globe meet in Hong Kong to participate in engaging talks with leaders in the politics, social entrepreneurship, investment and commercial sectors.


Highlight of the Social Investment Forum 2012

In this year, the key sessions from our forum include:

  • A key-note speech by Mr. Feng Lun, Chairman of China Vantone Real Estate on how businesses can achieve blended value and create social change capital;  
  • A plenary discussion made up of leading Chinese business leaders and investors discussing what it means for China to invest beyond just financial returns;  
  • Three plenary discussions featuring visionary companies, foundations and family offices in China and elsewhere in the world on how they view and invest in social businesses; and
  • Breakout afternoon presentations from 6 social enterprises in China leading the field in various development sectors.


Benefits of Participating in the Social Investment Forum 2012

The forum is also an exclusive platform allowing participants to:

  • Find out about investment opportunities that do well while doing good in China and Asia.
  • Interact with leading social entrepreneurs and expert practitioners in the impact investment space.
