A big HELLO and THANK YOU for dropping by!
Having built my career in a global investment bank, I have seen first-hand how - beyond all the profiteering and evil leeching they get slaughtered for in the press - an intermediary can really expedite and improve capital allocation. I have built an understanding of what investors want, and how this may show up in a company's mission, or its management, or their numbers. I also realise what they need in order to make an educated investment decision - the disclosures, access and quality assurance they ask for in return for vast amounts of investments.
So this is my attempt at applying these principles and skill set into creating real social change!
I am still finding my feet and building up my understanding of the changemakers in this vast, diverse and welcoming industry that is Philanthropy and Social Enterprises...and I hope to share my findings with you as I go along.
I hope this would be useful and interesting to you, and I ask for your patience and support in the process!
I will be updating this blog with my research on the industry, exciting new projects as well as investment themes and trends. Please follow me, join our mailing list, and give me a prod if I'm slow to update or respond on firstname.lastname@example.org!
P.S. I'm not a gardener...
