Courses: Impact Investing: Theory and Practice (ECONH202F01)

Fall 2013

Impact investing is investing to generate a financial return and a positive social benefit. It supports firms seeking to address social, environmental and /or governance problems (ESG). The focus of this course is to not only gain an understanding of the theory and practice of impact investing across its many components, but also to gain practical experience by assessing a particular set of potential impact investments, making formal presentations of our findings to an investment committee and providing an investment recommendation to a partner fund for its investments.
