When dealing with an investment portfolio it is quite common to “overuse” the bottom line. Sometimes there are other means to create and sustain value than an Income Statement. That’s the case of Social Impact Investments. In his talk, Luca walk us through an innovative idea to deliver great performance when talking about social impact.

Luca is the co-founder and co-CEO of GAWA Capital, Spain's leading impact investment firm, with more than €45 million under management in financial inclusion. He has spent most of the last 15 years working with and advising microfinance and financial institutions and SMEs.

Prior to founding GAWA Capital, he was an investment banker for Credit Suisse's Latin America Financial Institutions Group, working on a variety of microfinance-related transactions.
