Our Learning Hub for impact investing
Lack of knowledge about impact investing remains one of the main reasons for people not to consider impact in their financial decision-making process. Our open-source Learning Hub helps individuals and organisations to build their knowledge and skills about impact investing so that they can integrate it into their work and investment decisions.
The Learning Hub was developed with the help of a pro bono learning panel made up of senior impact investing practitioners. Resources featured on the hub will be reviewed and expanded on a regular basis.
Made up of six modules, professional organisations can use the learning hub to make impact part of their training courses and materials, while individuals are able to use it to build up knowledge in their areas of interest.
Global Knowledge Exchange
In addition to our Learning Hub, we run a Knowledge Exchange Series, a series of roundtables with National Advisory Boards (NABs) on impact investing in other countries, which provide a platform for mutual learning and practical knowledge sharing between NABSs to help strengthen impact investing markets globally. Topics include governance and sustainability, understanding supply- and demand-side opportunities as well as working with local investors and capital providers.
While the roundtables are open to NABs only, we publicly share a summary of each discussion. You can find the summaries for each session, and a document compiling key insights from across all of the sessions, below:
