Event description

Description

Since the Global Financial Crisis, there has been a pronounced loss of faith in the free market economy.

This has been coupled with increasing dissatisfaction over government moves for higher taxes to be gouged from both individuals and business — and then wasted on poorly-judged social programs and infrastructure projects.

With the risk and return matrix and reputation hazards to corporations and financial institutions following the GFC, capital markets are becoming increasingly attracted to social impact investing.

Josephine will speak on Impact investing, or social impact investing, which she believes, offers opportunities for investors with a commitment to social responsibility to invest in solutions to fix entrenched societal problems for both financial and social returns. Josephine will also highlight how successful impact investing is offering solutions to problems such as overcrowded social housing and employment programs for at-risk populations by harnessing the speed and efficiency of capital markets preventing wasteful government spending.




Josephine Cashman is a Worimi entrepreneur from New South Wales. She is a lawyer, businesswoman and social entrepreneur and sits on the Board of the Sydney Harbour Federation Trust and is the Deputy Chair of Gadigal Information Services. She is also the founder of the Big River Impact Foundation, Big River Impact Investments Pty Ltd and Riverview Global Partners Pty Ltd.

Josephine recently addressed the United Nation's full Human Rights Council on violence against Indigenous women and is widely acknowledged for her social advocacy work.
