Masterclass: Excellence in Impact Investing

*Terms & Conditions apply

Course Overview

Impact investing is addressing global societal challenges. Investing, which contributes to the betterment of human life in a sustainable manner, has great appeal to a wide range of investors, ranging from retail investors to high-networth individuals to large institutions and fund managers.  

This growing trend of explicitly and intentionally investing in businesses that advance the quality of life for the underprivileged, as well as addressing key social issues, has become a magnet for both investors and fund managers. Impact investing is growing larger and larger.

Beginning with the initial advocates of impact investing such as Development Financial Institutions like the Asian Development Bank, CDC, IFC, FMO, DEG and others, the impact investing universe now includes the giants of private equity such as KKR, TPG, and Blackstone.


UBS observes, "investors are increasingly factoring in environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations because they can be financially material and useful in analysis and decision making. We expect the next wave of growth will be driven by investors actively seeking to identify and address sustainability challenges in areas ranging from climate to inequality to healthcare." In a recent survey, 62% of family offices indicated that impact investments will be a key focus.

TPG established the $ 2 billion RISE fund focused exclusively on impact businesses, KKR has made large investments in ventures in the fields of renewable energy as well waste management in India out of its $1.3 billion impact fund. Apollo Global reportedly set a large target for its debut in the world of
impact investing under its Apollo Impact Mission(AIM).

“Proactively, intentionally, and authentically approaching ESG is more important than ever before,” KKR partner and co-head of global impact, Ken Mehlman, Fortune reported.

Several fund managers have become signatories to the United Nations-backed Principles for Responsible Investment.

This Masterclass covers the key issues, investing techniques, risks, and solutions
that underpin successful impact investing.

My work with PEPP laid the foundation for a career in that finance sector. During my time at PEPP, I had the opportunity of learning about diverse streams including private equity, mergers and acquisitions, equity valuations; diverse sectors including agriculture, infrastructure, and education among others; learning from industry leaders including Mr. Mathur; and first-hand access to world-class study material and case studies.Beyond work, I am eternally grateful for Mr. Mathur's advice and guidance throughout the past 8 years that I have known him.

The trainer (Arvind Mathur) discussed the practicality of private equity and deal structuring. Hence it provided very good insights.
