This session will feature Ceniarth's Founder Diane Isenberg in conversation with Ceniarth Director Greg Neichin discussing the evolution of the firm's impact investing strategy.  Ceniarth is committed to developing an impact-led portfolio focused on improving livelihoods in underserved and marginalized communities.  Ceniarth has moved away from the expectation that these investments will deliver "market-rate" returns and is focused on basic capital preservation, after inflation and expenses, to ensure the long term sustainability of its funding activities.  Diane and Greg will discuss how abandoning "market-rate" benchmarks opens up a much larger opportunity set for those focused on serving the most disadvantaged populations.  

Session held in Dumke Recital Hall (located on the 4th floor of Libby Gardner).
