Impact Investing Fellowship Series: LGT Impact Ventures

By October 15, 2016 No Comments

The next in our Fellowship Series is the LGT Impact Fellowship.

LGT Impact Ventures is the impact investing arm associated with LGT Bank, the oldest privately held private bank and asset manager. Their impact investing initiatives span over five regions and a number of sectors. Each year they open up applications for two streams: 1) their Impact Fellowship which places talent within one of their portfolio organizations; and 2) their Investment Associate Fellowship in which Fellows work within LGT Impact Ventures on deal sourcing, due diligence, and portfolio management.lgtvp

Those interested in bridging the gap from pure commercial business to impact investing can find great value in the Invest Associate Fellowship as not many organizations have programs focused on capital deployment.  In the past fellows have been placed in Brazil, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, Mexico, etc.

Things to note:

  • The program kicks off at LGT Impact Ventures’ headquarters in Zurich, Switzerland and includes leadership and cross cultural training, meetings with industry experts, and team building.
  • In some instances, fellows may be placed by themselves in their respective countries or work alongside one or two colleagues.
  • The program lasts for one year with frequent check-ins from LGT Impact Ventures’ regional investment teams.
