The Transform Finance Investor Network is a community of practice for asset owners and other finance practitioners exploring how to deploy capital for social change in accordance with the principles of transformative finance. With a commitment of over $2 billion in aligned capital, the Network is an opportunity for investors to workshop and compare cutting edge impact practices, receive deal analyses, and engage with communities.
They seek to empower community-based organizations by helping them use capital to advance their missions. Using their unique position at the intersection of finance and social change, they connect investors to projects that serve marginalized communities, support place-based investing initiatives through trainings, and educate grassroots leaders on capital strategies for social change through the flagship Institute for Social Justice Leaders.
They help investors navigate the impact investing space by helping them define the impact thesis for their portfolio, crafting investment policy statements, performing impact audits, and identifying pipelines of aligned opportunities. They develop tools to deepen impact and ensure accountability, such as stronger, more relevant metrics, frameworks and best practices, and alternative deal structures centered on mission preservation.See more
