This half day event marked the closing block of our course on Impact Investing at the University of St. Gallen in Switzerland. The course took place during the spring semester of 2016.

The theme of Impact Investing has gained substantial momentum in both, finance and social entrepreneurship communities over recent years. In addition student demand for course offers as well as supervision of theses on Impact Investing has risen steeply. The University of St. Gallen is actively responding to this demand by offering courses on related topics.


This course, titled Impact Investing: Redefining the Meaning of Return delivered by the HMC represents one of these offers and took place in March and April 2016 at Master level in the contextual study program of the University.

To complement and consolidate classroom based learning, the group had the opportunity to meet and discuss with Impact Investing practitioners that have a long standing experience and deep understanding of the impact investing industry. Hosted by LGT Venture Philanthropy, Natija Dolic of LGT Venture Philanthropy presented their Impact Investing activities before Jaume Iglésies of UBS Values Based Investing presented the bank's impact investing offers as well as the key drivers for further enhancing such offers at UBS.
