Conference: Global Microfinance Investment Congress, May 19-20, 2009, New York

Mar 2009
New York, United States, March, 02 2009 - The need for microfinance investment remains a top priority – especially given the current financial turmoil. Many of us believe that the potential long-term benefits for microfinance, as MFIs and investors implement more conservative policies, will ultimately encourage a more sustainable and robust business model for the future.

The need for a single international forum bringing together the leading players from MFI’s, International Banks, NGO’s and other stakeholders has never been greater.

Last year’s event welcomed over 250 attendees from 40 countries, and this year we’ve set our sights even higher!

Over the course of three-days, you’ll hear from – and have the opportunity to meet with – many notable speakers including the US Ambassador to the African Union, investment banks Deutsche Bank, JP Morgan Chase and Standard Chartered Bank, CEOs from the major networks, and NEW for 2009 leading philanthropic foundations such as The Citi Foundation, The Omidyar Network, The Rockefeller Foundation and The Wachovia Foundation.

The agenda – identified through our own market research with experts from the capital markets, institutional investors, MFIs, policy markers, networks and industry advisors – highlights the latest strategies for success in microfinance investing. Each session, whether you’re already engaged in microfinance investments or you’re in the initial stages of evaluating whether this is a viable investment vehicle for your portfolio, will be pertinent and of value to you.

The Global Microfinance Investment Congress stands apart as the meeting place for industry stakeholders from around the world. This is the forum where deals are made and relationships are forged. No other event will arm you with the knowledge and networking needed to make successful microfinance investments.
