Worthstone is thrilled to launch the Impact Awards 2019

The first awards for the UK retail impact investment community.

First showcased at the 2018 Social Investment Academy, the Impact Awards returns for its second year celebrating best practice in the retail impact investment sector; championing advisers, advisory firms, fund managers and discretionary fund managers (DFMs) who are leading the market in aligning retail investment strategies to achieve positive social and financial outcomes.

We believe, by celebrating achievements and showcasing best practice, the rest of the sector will be inspired by what can be achieved when impact is embraced within our investment market.

When asked to comment on her involvement she said: “I welcome the launch of the Social Investment Academy Impact Awards. This initiative from Worthstone supports the objectives of the Implementation Taskforce to improve the knowledge and confidence of financial advisers and wealth managers in the sector. I hope it will help to both stimulate and celebrate progress in social impact investment.

Elizabeth Corley, CBE, Vice-Chair, Allianz Global Investors and keynote speaker at the 2017 Social Investment Academy, presented the awards to Impact Champions.
