The role of academia in strengthening impact investing
Our founder, Ivo Knoepfel, has recently been appointed as chair of the Advisory Board of the Center for Sustainable Finance and Private Wealth (CSP), a research and teaching institution at the Department of Banking and Finance at the University of Zurich. CSP is unique in its position at the intersection of research and training, bringing together scientists, wealth owners, and investment professionals in order to generate knowledge and to mobilize capital toward impact. In the past years, CSP has trained hundreds of wealth managers and asset owners, with a particular focus on next-gens. Its ground-breaking research has helped understand the mechanisms through which asset owners can contribute positive impact in the real world. onValues is convinced that the critical voice of academia is needed to challenge the conventional wisdom of investors and improve impact investing practices, and is therefore proud to support CSP.
