EFH Logo2

The Ethical Finance Hub (EFH) is a Scottish Government-backed, practitioner-led body that connect individuals and organisations interested or active in ethical finance in order to: raise awareness, build capacity and facilitate practical activities (such as market research, events and advisory work) that supports the growth of the sector in Scotland. The EFH is committed to creating a fairer, more inclusive and socially responsible financial system.

Despite the remarkable recent growth of ethical finance there are few academic or professional courses that provide commercially-focused pragmatic training. Our executive education courses do exactly that and we invite you to to register for this unique workshop, delivered in partnership with Tribe Impact Capital, that will provide you with the knowledge and tools to develop an impact investing strategy.

Overview

Over the last decade, impact investing has shifted from a disruptive investment concept to a complex and rich investment ecosystem. The growing impact investment market provides capital to address the world’s most pressing challenges in sectors such as sustainable agriculture, renewable energy, conservation, microfinance, and affordable and accessible basic services including housing, healthcare, and education.

Impact investors seek to generate social and environmental impact as well as a range of financial returns from below market to market rate, depending on strategic goals. The increasing demand for impact investing products and services has opened a new commercial avenue for asset managers, fund managers and service providers interested in this growing market.

This practical workshop, delivered by Tribe Capital, will provide a contextual understanding of impact investing before embarking upon a unique learning journey that will help you to align your wealth / investment stewardship and creation with your personal values.



Learning Objectives

  • Developing a detailed understanding of impact investing and where it fits into the world of responsible investing

  • Identifying your personal values and risk tolerance

  • Understanding the financial opportunities and investment vehicles available to you in as an individual and organisation

  • Ability to develop an individual or corporate impact investment strategy



Core Topics

  1. A Growing Market - An Introduction to Impact Investing

  2. Creating your ImpactDNA

  3. Practical Guidance for Measuring Impact

We will liaise with registered delegates at least 2 weeks prior to each course date regarding this.
