About Total Impact

Good Capital Project and ImpactPHL are proud to present an exciting new gathering that will leave you with the tools, insights and connections to build a Total Impact Portfolio to deliver on both your financial and social goals.

Impact investing can be daunting and confusing, this series welcomes practitioners of all levels, from curious newcomers to established experts, to learn how to broaden the community and improve the world while meeting your or your client’s goals.

Since last June, the Good Capital Project has brought together practitioners, experts, and academics from throughout the financial, development, and non-profit communities to identify ways to expand the Impact Investing community and industry. One of the most common suggestions, and one of the Good Capital Project's first initiatives, is a new educational event series to teach investors and financial advisors how to incorporate Impact into their portfolios. 

What to expect

Who Should Attend

  • Learn best practices, strategies and ideas to incorporate Impact into portfolios. 
  • Learn about executable Impact investments across all asset classes.
  • Get inspired to join the fast growing impact investment community.

The Total Impact conference is for advisors, family offices, and investors who are interested in aligning their portfolios with their social values. We are bringing together impact investing experts, academics, and development leaders to demonstrate how to build total impact portfolios. We believe the financial services industry has the tools to solve some of the world's biggest challenges and we would like you to join us.
