Partners are individuals or businesses who either already manage, or aspire to manage, their own social purpose business and who would benefit from being able to advise investors and conduct other regulated activities such as arranging impact investment deals by accessing our Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) licenses as an Appointed Representative. Partners can also use our impact evaluation tools and methodologies, access our networks and benefit from a bespoke training programme. Partners undergo a formal due diligence and selection process.
How We Work
At any time Partners will work on a range of projects to grow the market for impact investment. These may include working with clients of Investing for Good.
Developing new financial products that align social and financial returns with the interests of the social sector and socially motivated investors
Supporting social sector organisations to scale their operations and impact by raising debt, equity or outcomes-based finance at scale
Advisory Projects and Research
Assisting social purpose organisations and potential funders to create financial solutions to social challenges or market intelligence that assist impact investors to deploy impact capital
A partnership is appropriate for individuals who have had a successful career in banking, finance, consulting or the third sector and are interested in exploring how to use their expertise to make a difference in society. Partners are entrepreneurial and experienced professionals who can confidently lead the execution of capital raising and advisory mandates with clients whose business models deliver financial returns and high social impact.
Partners must have:
- Strong interest in how investment approaches can be used to drive social impact
- Experience delivering complex consultancy projects
- Strong communication skills and experience of client management
- Prior experience working in the social sector or volunteering
