We want to increase competency in impact investing so more investors incorporate impact into their work and investment decisions. Lack of knowledge about impact investing remains one of the main reasons for people not to consider impact in their financial decision-making process.
What we are doing to achieve it
We have created an Impact Investing Learning Framework for providers of investment qualifications and trainings, such as professional bodies and trade associations. This formed the basis for our open-source Learning Hub, packed with helpful and accessible resources, that helps individuals and organisations to build their knowledge and skills.
We have formed partnerships with organisations to help them use our Learning Framework and Hub to deliver educational events and develop training materials on impact investing for their members, such as the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment and CFA UK, a professional membership body representing 11,000 investment professionals in the UK.
Our impact learning work has been guided by a Learning Panel made up of representatives from across the mainstream and impact investing sectors, including Barclays, Aberdeen Standard Investments and Bridges Fund Management.
Both our Learning Framework and our Learning Hub are regularly reviewed and improved. If you would like to share your feedback, suggest materials for the Hub or support our work, please get in touch at email@example.com
