Register for free webinar and contribute to more affordable housing in New Zealand

Register for this free webinar hosted by Community Housing Aotearoa on 'Ethical and Innovative Finance for Affordable Housing' on Wednesday 14 July, 10:00-11:30am.

There is a growing appetite for impact investment opportunities, to help address New Zealand's biggest social and environmental challenges, such as our housing crisis, whilst achieving a fair return.

This webinar brings together the following industry leaders to share their perspectives on ethical finance and how New Zealand can build affordable housing, whilst still making a fair profit.

  • Sam Stubbs, Managing Director, Simplicity: an active large scale wholesale investor’s perspective.

  • Shamubeel Eaqub, Economist: a plain talking economist’s view.

  • Dean Spicer, Head of Sustainable Finance, ANZ: a Bank perspective.

  • James Palmer, CEO Community Finance: a practitioner’s perspective.

Place-based impact investments in New Zealand are making a difference and helping community housing providers build more affordable housing. In the last year Community Finance has raised more than $100 million through New Zealand based philanthropists and institutional investors such as Kiwisaver funds.

This webinar will provide an update on the current situation and highlights the ambition of both New Zealand finance institutions and community housing providers to do even more.
