Workshop on Creating and Managing Impact Investment Strategies

Jointly offered by CUHK Business School and The Hong Kong Jockey Club Programme on Social Innovation. (The Hong Kong Jockey Club Programme on Social Innovation is a partnership between The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, the University of Chicago, and the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.)

The Hong Kong Jockey Club Programme on Social Innovation and the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) Business School will host a special executive education course to engage impact investors, NGO executives, family offices, and other stakeholders.

The first part of the course features coursework and case studies covering impact investing, due diligence, deal structuring, portfolio construction, and impact measurement. These skills will be applied to write an investment proposal and to prepare a business pitch with Hong Kong social enterprises. Attendees will then work in groups to conduct analyses and present investment recommendations to a mock investment committee made up of institutional investors.

Through a mix of lectures, case studies, and collaborative hands-on experience, attendees will leave with the frameworks, skills, and networks necessary to begin making impact investments.
