I have just set up the UK's first student-led social investment fund called Prosper. It is a community interest company whose mission is to deliver positive social change through responsible student-led investments. We take students of all ages and degree backgrounds and teach them how to invest in public equities through responsible ESG strategies.
- Exploring how ESG considerations should be treated as financial risks to deliver better business practices.
- Working with more universities and students to bring a broader awareness about the importance of sustainable financial markets at a student level. Inevitably, students will become the future leaders within finance and therefore it is important to educate them properly in advance. Finance drives change and I truly believe in being able to merge profit with purpose.
