Frequently asked questions

What clients usually engage your Impact Investing Consultants?

We work with clients from all over the world. Our clients range from enterprise and corporate clients to companies that are backed by Private Equity or Venture Capital funds. Furthermore, we work directly with Family Offices, Private Equity firms, and Asset Managers. Most of our enterprise clients have dedicated Corporate Development, M&A, and Strategy divisions which are utilizing our pool of Impact Investing talent to add on-demand and flexible resources, expertise, or staff to their in-house team.

How is Fintalent different?

Fintalent is not a staffing agency. We are a community of best-in-class Impact Investing professionals, highly specialized within their domains. We have streamlined the process of engaging the best Impact Investing talent and are able to provide clients with Impact Investing professionals within 48 hours of first engaging them. We believe that our platform provides more value for Corporates, Ventures, Private Equity and Venture Capital firms, and Family Offices.

Our Hiring Process – What do ‘Community-Approach’ and ‘Invite-to-Apply’ mean?

‘Invite-to-Apply’ is the process by which we shortlist candidates for the majority of projects on our platform. Often, due to the confidential nature of our clients’ projects, we do not release projects to our whole platform but using the matching technology and expertise of our internal team we select candidates who are the best fit for our clients’ needs. This approach also ensures engagement with our community of professionals on the Fintalent platform, and is a benefit both to our clients and independent professionals, as our freelancers have direct access to the roles best suited to their skills and are more likely to take an interest in a project if they have been sought out directly. In addition, if a member of our community is unavailable for a project but knows someone whose skill set perfectly fits the brief, they are able to invite them to apply for the role, utilizing the personal networks of each talent on our platform.

Which skills and expertise do your Fintalents have?

The Fintalents are hand-picked and vetted Impact Investing professionals, speak over 55 languages, and have professional experience in all geographical markets. Our Impact Investing consultants’ experience ranges from 3+ years as analysts at top investment banks and Strategy consultancies, to later career C-level executives. The average working experience is 6.9 years and 80% of all Fintalents range from 3-12 years into their careers.

Our Impact Investing consultants have experience in leading firms as well as interfacing with clients and wider corporate structures and management. What makes our Impact Investing talent pool stand out is the fact that they have technical backgrounds in over 2,900 industries.

How does the screening and onboarding of your Impact Investing talent work?

Fintalent.io is an invite-only platform and we believe in the power of referrals and a closed-loop community. Members of our community are able to invite a small number of professionals onto the platform. In addition, our team actively scouts for the best talent who have experience in investment banking or have worked at a global top management consultancy. All of our community-referred talent and scouted talent are subject to a rigorous screening process. As such, over the last 18 months totaling more than 750 hours of onboarding calls, of which only 40% have received an invite-link after the call.

What happens if I am not satisfied with my Impact Investing consultant’s work?

During your initial engagement with a member of our Fintalent talent pool with no risk. If you are not satisfied with the quality of your hire for any reason then we are able to find a replacement at short notice. There is no minimum commitment per project, but generally projects last at least 5 days and can last 12+ months.

Everything you need to know about Impact Investing

What is Impact Investing?

Impact investing refers to investments that generate financial and social impact. Impact investors want to help resolve the world’s greatest problems through investment dollar decisions. The impact is a positive social or environmental outcome. An example would be investing in a for-profit company whose revenues help provide clean water for people in Africa affected by the lack of safe water or investing in an ESOP (employee stock ownership plan) where part of your portfolio is invested in the company you work for – This can help you save for retirement, while enabling your company to make investments in things that support community charitable causes. Both of these examples have the aim of helping society while also making money.

Impact investing is the process of making a positive social or environmental impact, while also achieving financial investment returns. Impact investing is not a charity or investments with no return. Impact investors expect some return on invested capital, and rate that return based on their ability to meet the impact goal. The returns are therefore based on both financial value and social value, which are determined by the investment’s strategic focus and its relative contribution to change in the world at large.

Categories of Impact Investments

A socially sustainable investment is one that helps create a more socially just world. The most common example of this is investing in a business that offers greater equality of opportunity and benefits those who have less resources or opportunities. Companies that help provide clean drinking water and sanitation are good examples of this. Other examples include investments in micro lending, real estate, venture capitalism and social businesses.

An environmentally sustainable investment is one that helps protect the earth or environment. This can mean purchasing stocks from companies that fund renewable energy or environmentally safe technologies or investing in community gardens, organic farms, wildlife conservation, recycling companies and non-forest products businesses. This is also a good way to help protect our planet as these companies are better for the environment, provide jobs and benefit society through the products or services they provide. The most common example of this is investing in green technology that furthers the clean energy revolution or investing in renewable energy companies.

Impact investing is a different way of thinking about investing, one that focuses on creating social value and sometimes making money because it will help advance the world’s most important issues. There are three main categories for impact investment: socially sustainable investing, environmentally sustainable investing and socially responsible investing.
