Tell us a little about yourself: I'm a full-time, five child mother, full-time worker and continuously learning new concepts. I have worked for a long time in different companies, the last one was in a private bank where I was in charge of all external connections. After this 11-year experience, I created my own business as an independent consultant in: business optimisation, finance tools selection, and today I've set up with other talents a company dedicated to entrepreneurship coaching and support. Learning impact analysis gave me the time to reconcile my personal interest for the SDG's and how companies implement these objectives in their values production.
What motivated you to join the community? As individuals, we each have distinct goals, as shaped by our values and beliefs, which may throughout life's journey. However, as investors, we may struggle to reflect these values and beliefs in our portfolios. While there is no one solution that matches the diversity of the investor community, there is a common framework that can be adapted to meet each individual's investment goals. As an impact analyst I found a way to reconcile, within a common framework, traditional investment objectives with purpose.
