What People Say About TBLI CONFERENCE™
The TBLI conference stands for both quality and for focus on the right things within the investment space. I do not know any other conference like this, and this is meant in a pure positive way. Both the crowd and the presentors are really different from the 'usual suspects' within the financial industry, and this is what makes it unique.
Morten Halborg - CIO Skandia Asset Management
At the confluence of impending climate disaster, social inequality and the outbreak of conflict, we were thrilled by the multiple impact investors and stakeholders that want to to make of Colombia's peace process a profitable investment. Choco4Peace aims to be their partner to write a new tomorrow!

The 2018 Stockholm event was extremely valuable two days. It focused attention in the precise areas I needed, along with excellent insightful practitioners out the field making a social impact, with not too many options but enough to learn a great deal in new areas the accompanying workshops. I wouldn’t hesitate flying quite a distance for another event.

TBLI Conference stands out from other conferences in the standard of value I received during my attendance. The topics covered, quality of contacts made, deals executed and community generated are noticeably better than other conferences I’ve attended. Thank you Mr. Rubinstein for your vision & execution
Ibrahim AlHusseini (The Husseini Group LLC)
I have been attending your conferences for several years and always find them worthwhile. Your most recent event in Amsterdam was of an extremely high standard - the speakers were first class and there was a level of in-depth engagement with the issues that was thought-provoking and highly informative. Congratulations
Rufo Quintavalle (Agro-Ecological Investment Management)
TBLI is a battery charger event. It’s an event that makes you realize how outdated your thinking has become. It is a crash course, a mini green investing MBA. It’s an energizing place - it’s got a critical role in diffusing the best practice
Leo Johnson (Co-Founder of Sustainable Finance Limited)
TBLI has established itself as the most significant gathering place for those interested in sustainable and related investment strategies. The rich array of firms and strategies represented at TBLI make it the best place to come to hear from cutting edge investors and learn from their experiences….
TBLI may rightly take credit for offering a unique platform that brings together this diverse field of work. By reaching across the silos it fosters a set of discussions that are critical to advancing not only the interests of those involved in sustainable finance, but in improving the understanding of mainstream investors with regard to the innovations taking place within the financial services arena
Jed Emerson (Senior Fellow, Generation Foundation, Generation Investment Management)
The TBLI is the internationally most renowned gathering for SRI we have today. As in all paradigm shifts, change begins with a growing number of champions and leaders who are clever enough to survive in the old paradigm while preparing for the new. To that end TBLI, the most influential conference on this arena, has played a role that cannot be overestimated
Karl Henrik Rober (PhD, MD Founder of Natural Step)
TBLI [is] – first and foremost – an investment conference. There are many other venues for advancing pure social and environmental activism. TBLI is different because your time is spent on investment fundamentals, new research on maximizing alpha, and meeting with investors who have similar levels of fiduciary responsibilities to manage and/or guide large investment portfolios….TBLI creates a safe-place for real financial professionals to ask questions and rethink long-held ideas of managing investments
Toni Symonds (Chief Consultant, Assembly Committee on Jobs Economic Development and the Economy California State Legislature)
TBLI is one of the most important organizations to provide a meeting ground for those thoughtful individuals in the financial, industrial, academic and NGO communities who seek to create greater awareness about the environmental and sustainablity issues
Prof. Prakash Sethi (University Distinguished Professor, Baruch College)

TBLI, Stockholm was a very enjoyable, informative and successful event with the chance to hold conversations with a broad range of knowledgeable, active investment management professionals.
Our SDG conversation, moderated by Martin Palmer, exposed a number of important points about types of investment including Social Bonds which proved helpful to all, I believe. It also highlighted an opportunity for further sharing of knowledge about how investing sustainably does have impact for us as a global society.
Wishing you and your team continued success.and thank you again, Robert. Rosemary J De Vos Coasts for Life Ltd London
