Doing the Total Impact Portfolio Challenge has been an awesome experience. It’s something where you actually get a chance to take a practitioner’s view as a student, and be able to apply the skills you’re learning, build upon them, and also really consider relevant questions in the industry as a growing professional. This was really a once in a lifetime opportunity to be able to do that.

I have gained so much insight into ESG and impact investing. It’s definitely where the industry’s going.

This is exactly the kind of opportunity that I’ve been looking for. It’s an opportunity to apply all the academic and real-world skills that I have to this new field, including portfolio construction, achieving financial return while also integrating impact, and making sure we’re achieving the client’s goals for their values and mission.
