Life insurers face two challenges: How to invest effectively in this low-rate environment, and how to invest purposefully to bring about social change. Recently, interest in the latter seems to have grown significantly as the need for greater economic empowerment and racial equity within our communities has been brought into focus.
Insurers have an opportunity to address both challenges through investment strategies that support underinvested communities and also meet their financial objectives. In this webinar, we will discuss how to incorporate impact goals with your investment objectives and how to determine appropriate investments that seek to meet those goals. As an example, we will explore affordable housing as an asset class that can provide positive social impact and market rate returns, and also illustrate how one life insurer fits this asset class into its general account allocation.
