On October 23, Private Wealth and Financial Advisor magazines will be hosting an industry-must-attend impact investing workshop in Boston. The title of the event is "Means of Impact," and I will be moderating for the entire day. The workshop will define how we can affect people, places and things all over the world for the better by not only our actions, but our investments.

From crowdfunding social entrepreneurs who are developing world-changing businesses, to case studies of how impact investors have succeeded in reaping returns from their portfolios, to the evolution of corporate social responsibility, there is a varied menu to be had. To be sure, environmental, social and corporate governance issues will be addressed. And we'll learn from a new study issued by the World Economic Forum how impact investing is on the brink of exploding into mainstream investors' portfolios. A great line-up of speakers has been assembled. You can get continuing education credits, too. Show up, say hi, and get to know more about one of the fastest growing segments of the financial services industry. It's not worth getting left behind. Come to Boston!   Sign up now.
