Course Description

The pool of capital for social impact is growing. As impact investing and CSR efforts join grant making as vehicles for social change, this increase in capital could lead to an increase in social impact—but only if the money is well spent and impact is properly measured. Professionals outside of the traditional social sector – including personal wealth advisors, private equity fund managers, private banking professionals, investment banking professionals, management consultants, and various other financial services professionals – are influencing social capital investment decisions

Over four weeks, this masterclass will guide professionals through the process of making informed and effective choices to assess social impact opportunities with the same rigor they bring to traditional finance. In addition to evaluating and managing the financial implications, social capital investors will be equipped with the tools and capacity to meaure and manage social impact.
