5th Element Group PBC, Gitterman Wealth Management, and Family Office Insights to Co-Host First SDG Family Office Summit at United Nations

​​5th Element Group PBC, Gitterman Wealth Management, and Family Office Insights formally announced today that they will co-host the inaugural SDG Family Office Summit at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City on September 5, 2019. The event is a private gathering of 300 guests representing the Family Office community, as well as leading experts in the areas of ESG, Impact, and Climate Change.

The focus of this first-ever Summit at the UN is to facilitate discussion and collaboration regarding the relationship between private capital and positive social change. The day will begin with a special panel moderated by The Wall Street Journal in partnership with HealRWorld, and will include collaboration, networking, global announcements, case studies, panel discussions and keynotes relating to the Family Office role in achieving the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.

"Stewards of private wealth have much to offer to this urgent undertaking," said Jeff Gitterman, CEO of Gitterman Wealth Management. "This Summit is an intentional effort to build community among Family Office members who currently align with the SDGs or aspire to do so, and will provide ways to overcome specific hurdles or a general lack of information or connectivity in that effort."

TED-style flash presentations featuring confidential case studies of successful impact investment and philanthropic strategies will punctuate the Summit schedule. Focus areas will include impact investing in a circular economy, the intersection of climate risk and finance, the intersection of human rights and finance, specific strategies for passing investment values across the generations, and other subjects to be announced on the event website (www.sdgfamilyoffice.org).

Keynote speakers include Col. Ronald Garan Jr., a former NASA Astronaut who will share about The Orbital Perspective; and Bob Litterman, Chairman of the Risk Committee at Kepos Capital LLP, who will speak about the vital intersection of climate risk and finance.

"We believe that the Family Office community has an essential leadership role to play in the pursuit of the UN Sustainable Development Goals," said 5th Element Group president Jim Van Eerden. "The objective of this Summit is to help encourage and leverage activation opportunities that demonstrate that leadership path."
