Yahoo Finance • VFG introduces new Impact Investing Think Tank, Impact U • October 26, 2017
WOODBURY, NY–(Marketwired – October 26, 2016) – Vanderbilt Financial Group will host their Annual Sales and Compliance Meeting on Thursday October 27th, and launch their newest project, Impact U. Impact U will house original content, in the form of interviews, videos, e-books, and podcasts with Impact Experts and Enthusiasts on a communal platform to spread the impact investing movement. “We’re so excited to finally share Impact U with the public. We realized over a year ago that Impact Investing is not as easy to define or as accessible to learn, as it should be. Impact U makes it easy to find everything an advisor, investor, or student needs to know about the space, all in one spot,” says Chief Creative Officer, Jenny Klaum. The goal of this educational platform is to inspire and inform through collaboration and shared experiences, hoping to further the movement because they believe that “impact together is bigger and better.”
To gain access to Impact U, simply go to www.impactu.me and enroll as a student, investor, or advisor. This will ensure that you receive content most appropriate to you each time you sign on. By enrolling, you become a member of the community and can consume the content at your own pace, free of charge. Impact U also has a partnership with the Montreal based, Concordia University’s Sustainable Investment Professional Certification or SIP, the only Impact Investing Certification currently available. Impact U Students gain discounted access to the full curriculum and certification. “I am excited about our partnership with Impact U because it will help us communicate to a wider audience the critical message that investors can no longer afford to ignore environmental, social and governance risks,” says Lecturer Amr Addas.
