At the SPHERE week event in Zurich "Impact Investing: Wie kann der Placebo-Effect verhindert werden?", the SSF CEO, Sabine Döbeli, presented the SSF roadmap. During the conference, experts will help investors to gain more insights on the global impact notation of a multi-asset portfolio, on the importance of the value chain analysis to measure impact, on the meaningful results Engagement can bring and on the maximisation of impact by investing in green bonds and finally, on Agri-Food Tech and if it can achieve sustainable food systems transformation.
