TBLI CLUB Benelux Launch

TBLI CLUB Benelux, a new network for ESG and Impact Investing, had a very successful launch yesterday, with 75 registered guests. We are grateful to ABN AMRO for hosting it, and to Stephen Brenninkmeijer for being our keynote speaker.

Stephen engaged the audience with his experience as an Impact Investor. What were his motivation, experience, succes and failures.
Everyone felt inspired, educated, and made many new relations for future development via the Pathable Networking service provided for all members.

What is TBLI CLUB?

Looking forward to next TBLI CLUB Sept. 5, 2012 with Gloria Nelund of Trilinc Global who will talk about her project to create a regulated retail impact investing private equity fund.

Looking forward to it.
Join TBLI CLUB as individual or corporate member along with ABN AMRO, FMO, MN Services, Rabobank, Robeco, and Triodos.

We have had a successful start to FRIENDS of TBLI, but also quite a few inquiries to specify what exactly the benefits of Friends of TBLI are. We have now added a more detailed section on these benefits, which I am including together with the original text on the FRIENDS of TBLI. The list of those Friends who don’t want to be anonymous, will be posted on our website shortly.

Thank you for your help.


After fourteen successful years, TBLI is proud of its global network consisting of successful forerunners in ESG and Impact Investing. Together with our partners we are determined to continue working towards our long-term objective: to help shaping the future of a sustainable economy, revolutionizing attitudes towards environmental, social and governance issues, and mobilizing more capital towards ESG and Impact Investing.

We have cause for optimism as we witness more and more financial institutions placing ESG and Impact Investing higher on their agendas. Especially now, in the current times of tough decisions on how the industry will shape up to the future.

It has become increasingly important to find creative solutions to funding growth. Building on the inspiration and generous support from our network, TBLI will now scale up its activities with the launch of FRIENDS of TBLI and the TBLI CLUB.
