Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL)


Family offices diversify their assets across various activities, spanning traditional investing, philanthropy, and impact investing. Impact investing stands out within this spectrum, representing a strategy and perspective that transcends financial gains. It enables investors to align a significant portion of their profit-oriented portfolio with their values. 

This session also aims to stimulate dialogue and action among family office investors regarding the critical role they can play in advancing sustainability initiatives across society. The following topics will be discussed:

  • What are the trends of impact investing in 2023? 
  • What are the key principles for impact investing that are particularly relevant to family offices?
  • How to execute an impact investing strategy? 


  • Ivan Lopez Jr., Dubai International Finance Centre
  • Komal Sahu, Chief of Sustainable Finance, Asian Venture Philanthropy Network (AVPN) 
  • Samar Ibrahim, COP28 Program Director & Global Sustainability, EY Parthenon
