Rockville, MD, September 23, 2019 — Bronfman Rothschild, an independent investment advisor based in Rockville, Maryland, today announced that Managing Director Glen Macdonald will moderate a panel at Opal Group’s Annual Impact Investing Forum North. The event will be held September 23-24 in New York, NY.

As part of Opal Group’s Impact Investment Series, The Annual Impact Investing Forum will bring together influencers, investors, and providers to examine many of the asset classes in the growing impact investing space. Topics such as defining impact investing, portfolio construction, asset class opportunities, and the role of the investor will be discussed at the conference.

The panel on which Macdonald will be a moderator, “The Role of Data Gathering in the Impact Space: What to Measure and How,” will explore the mechanisms of impact and theories of change, differences between private and public markets in terms of impact measurement, and several other themes surrounding research and measurement in impact investing.

“It’s an honor to be invited to moderate a panel at Opal Group’s Impact Investing Forum, an event which I hope continues to inform and inspire the next generation of investors to create positive social and environmental change, as well as market rate returns, through impact investing,” said Macdonald. “I also look forward to hearing from the many notable panelists as they share their expertise through our discussion of the ever-evolving world of impact investing.”
