‘The Nature of Investing’ with Katherine Collins

Together with organising partners Triodos Bank, the VBA, the SFL, the IUCN and biomimicryNL, Ministry of Economic Affairs and Community of Practice Financial institutions & Natural Capital CoP FiNC (RVO), Spring College co-organises this event.

Katherine Collins is founder and CEO of Honeybee Capital and author of the book ‘The Nature of Investing: Resilient Investment Strategies through Biomimicry’. With more than 20 years of experience in the commercial world of investing in the USA and inspired by nature and biomimicry, she shows investors to think ‘outside the box’ and by doing so, to find the optimal investments and a healthy and resilient financial system. Every fund led by Katherine exceeded its own benchmark.

Monday afternoon May 9th, Katherine Collins will tell her story and talk in depth about the biggest challenges for the financial world in which biomimicry principles can help. It will be about the differences between risk and uncertainty, about the importance of connection and collaboration and about resilience and stability.

For this afternoon we specifically welcome people who are working in the financial systems (Chief Financial Officers, Chief Investment Officers, treasurers, econometrists, actuaries, bankers, controllers/accountants, investors) and who are intrigued by what they might be able to learn from our natural systems. We also welcome some experts from our natural systems to gain insight how their knowledge and wisdom could be applied for inspiring our financial and economic system to innovate.

Location: Rosarium, Amsterdam Zuid (walking distance from Amsterdam RAI trainstation)
Times: welcome from 14:30, program starts at 15:00 till 17:00 and is followed by a drink
