The survey revealed four key findings in impact investing market trends: The impact investing industry remains diverse. Over time, impact investing has grown in sophistication and depth. Impact investment management and measurement practices have matured, but opportunities for refinement remain.
Impact investors have a positive outlook for the future despite recent adverse conditions. A United Approach Impact investment is a relatively recent term, coined by the Rockefellers in to put a name to investments intended to generate both financial return and social and environmental good. The GIIN has defined four core characteristics that constitute impact investing: Intentionality : The investment must have an intentional desire to contribute to measurable social or environmental benefit.
Use evidence and impact data in investment design : Impact investments cannot be designed on hunches. They must use evidence and data where available to drive intelligent investment design. I studied abroad in France during undergrad. I do not have a business background yet am passionate about social innovation and impact investing. In 10 years I would like to work at an impact investing firm. I am about to complete a year of service in AmeriCorps at a nationally known non-profit in its development sales department.
Given my education and background, what would you suggest:. Interesting of the feedback you provided Thomas Nicole. Even if we have to pay bills and support ourselves in reality, what is something you would advise where I can still have a great foundation and useful experience for entering impact investing or some other social area for a living later even I get a job as and entry-level job as teller?
Hi Brian, thanks for this interview. I have no finance background whatsoever. How can I prepare myself to move into this space? Thanks for your insights! What about interning for a social venture fund? This may help. You will need to demonstrate your passion for sustainability and the environment. Of course, experience matters. However, I think most of the people who work at such funds are usually very passionate about making an impact.
If you share similar passion and this shines in interviews, I think this will make up for your lack of experience. Im trying to do some impact investing at the moment and unfortunately, there are not alot of information on it. I am a 15 year old Australian who wants to get into investment banking after university and your website is required reading for me. My plan was to go to the best university in my country Melbourne and then make my way into banking. Is my best bet working for an Australian investment bank and then going for a top-tier American business school and then try and get a job in the US.
The reason being because I really want to live in the States. I would love a reply and thank you for this site. It would be tough to move directly from Melbourne into a bulge bracket bank in the US unless you work at a top bank in Australia first. So your best bet is to get into a top university there, then work at the best bank you can get into, and then transfer to a US office in the future. This site is so helpful because I can get a grasp of what I am really getting into and lose some of that naivety.
Thank you once again. Perhaps readers who have worked in both regions may have some input. I also have to thank you on your work for the site, again it is vital for me. Those options are excellent and will definitely give me some thought. Indeed, the University of Melbourne has exchange programs to Stern and Columbia thank you for being well-researched.
I very much appreciate your response. Now I read the full article. Excellent one and all best to the interviewee! But now that European Union was mentioned, renewables and everything green is heavily subsidized, also social housing in some countries as well and investing into these can be very darn profitable with not much risk…. But the subsidization of renewables likely continues under slightly altered schemes.
In terms of boutique banks, is it true that they pay quarterly bonuses instead of year-end like the bulge bracket banks? Yes, it is hard to transition to larger banks later on but still easier than coming from a firm that is something other than an investment banking.
I have an interview coming up for an fixed income sales analyst, but Im not familiar with this interview process. I have previously bought the BIWS interview guide, will this be sufficient to prep for the interview? If not, are there any other BIWS courses or third party material you could recommend? And they may ask about those topics, though the focus will probably be more traditional sales and markets questions.
That guide is very technical and in-depth but I doubt they will ask those types of questions in sales interviews. Thanks so much for this post. I cannot tell you how remarkably similar my story is. Is it possible for the author to get in touch with me — I would love to bounce some ideas off you!
To anyone considering Impact Investing as a career, understand that it is maybe the single most difficult field in finance to break into. I had an informational interview with an Analyst at an impact fund and he said that the talent pool vying for these jobs is ridiculous- tons of jaded ex-bankers from the best schools vying for a veritable handful of positions. Thanks for adding that, interesting to hear.
It seems like it was easier for the interviewee in HK, but who knows…. Its all because of the connections you gain. Would you put us in that category? Who else would be part of that club? Sure, it would be similar I believe. The term is just what the interviewee used and what was referenced in the JPM report. Page 82 of the report lists other participants in the sector — the first few names on the list: Acumen Fund, Anne E. Thank you so much for this post! This is a branch of finance that I have been interested in for a long time but unfortunately, not one that there is a lot of information on.
Can you give me an idea of salary levels in this industry? Also, as a follow up: I know this post talked about impact investing in HK. Can you give us an idea of what the industry outlook and job opportunities are like in India, Africa, and the US? India and Africa: Not sure if there is much of a presence there, though I could be wrong. The US is much more developed and has more opportunities due to all the funds and initiatives mentioned here.
Actually, there are opportunities for some kinds of impact investing outside the US — Europe is actually much more enlightened in terms of understanding impact investing than the US is. In terms of India and Africa, due to the large numbers of microfinance institutions, there are a number of local microfinance focused PE funds there but not sure how difficult it is to get into that.
If you look on the GIIN website, you will also find a semi-comprehensive list of influential impact investment players, many of whom have local presences in India and Africa. Brian, thanks for the interview, love it. From the way the interview ended, I assume there will be no second part.
