Friends of TBLI

I am exceptionally happy with the support that TBLI has received from its friends for the launch FRIENDS of TBLI™. Over the years, we have had continuous requests from various individuals who were not able to sponsor TBLI Conference, but wanted to do more to help us with our mission of educational outreach of asset owners and managers regarding ESG and Impact Investing. FRIENDS of TBLI™ was created for that purpose.

By joining our investment expert network FRIENDS of TBLI™ with a financial contribution (starting from €250) you will markedly help us scale up and finance the innovation of our services. You will also be entitled to a number of benefits offered exclusively for members.
