First Plenary
Use of Finance for Social Good: 'How best can we harness markets for social good?'

Hong Kong is one of the world’s leading cities in financial services. This success has been spearheaded by financiers in search of profit, but public institutions are also showing how financial markets can be used to deliver social impact. Globally, a rapidly growing impact investing sector is helping to make the case further, by demonstrating that smart investments can deliver both financial and social impact returns.

This session will explore how different stakeholders in financial services, on both the public and private side, can learn from each other when trying to improve how we harness markets for social good.
