We share the belief that finance has the power to work as a catalyst for economic, social and environmental change. We also recognize that purpose-driven individuals are poised to reshape the global economy. To succeed in the impact finance sector, it takes more than one skill set. You not only need to understand the fundamentals of finance, but have cross-sector knowledge, interpersonal skills and a deep understanding of social and environmental issues to succeed.
Co-founders Ashley and Aunnie cut their teeth at big corporates in the U.S., before realizing they wanted to use their skills in finance and investment in a more meaningful way. After successfully making the transition into the impact investing sector, they began to mentor and advise others who wanted to pursue a similar path. From this experience, they realized that there is a huge opportunity to continue to prepare and guide aspiring impact-driven talent to organizations looking for phenomenal individuals. That is why they built Impact Finance Pro.
