In the first of a new podcast series, host Damian Payiatakis, our Head of Sustainable and Impact Investing, is joined by Juliet Agnew, our Head of Philanthropy, to explore a topic increasingly on the minds of families and foundations: “What should be the relationship between our philanthropy and investing? Could and should we more closely align the two?”

In this fascinating discussion, which examines the potential benefits and barriers to an integrated approach to impact, Juliet shares UHNW family insights, and reflects on the unique takeaways from the latest ‘Investing for Global Impact’ report.
