When mission-driven organizations are measuring today’s investment portfolios, why should they settle for metrics that they wouldn’t accept from their grantees? Learn from experts on evaluation frameworks and how you negotiate the risk adjusted rate of return and impact invested rate of return. This will not include ESG Investing.
