Impact Monday | Sustainable Investing
Funds For Good and LITA.co explain how to obtain financial return and have a real societal impact at the same time.
Ever wondered how to invest in such a way that you obtain financial return and have a real societal impact at the same time? You can find out on the next Impact Monday. On the 14th of January Patrick Somerhausen and Céline Bouton will introduce the concept of ‘sustainable investing’.
As Patrick Somerhausen is the co-CEO of Funds for Good, it is safe to say he knows a thing or two about sustainable investing. This company develops and sells socially responsible savings and investment products. They reinvest part of their profit and their time in supporting unemployed people becoming entrepreneurs. Céline Bouton draws from her experience as manager at LITA.co, a crowdfunding platform which connects individuals wishing to give a sense of purpose to their money and companies that have a demonstrable positive impact on our society.
This is your chance to fire any questions you might have: What is the difference between traditional investing and sustainable investing? What do I need to bear in mind if I want to invest in projects or enterprises with a positive societal impact? How can I myself invest in an impactful enterprise? And how can I benefit of the tax-shelter and reduce my taxes by investing ethically? The answers are waiting for you at the Impact House.
