As a Champion Affiliate Supporter, we’re excited to profile WHEB who will be speaking at the Social Investment Academy on 8th November 2018; helping to “Bring Impact to Life”.
Their session will cover the methodology employed for impact measurement and reporting; thereby helping delegates to appreciate the perspective of a fund manager who is engaging with companies and holding these companies accountable for their impact ‘claims.’
See below for an example of one of WHEB’s investments that is generating both positive impact and a financial return along with details on their speaker – George Latham.
WHEB Investment example
Predominantly operating nursing homes for the elderly in Europe, Orpea makes a positive impact by providing high-quality elderly care. It helps to meet the growing demand for more care homes due to global ageing populations. Its strong focus on quality and risk management and its role as an industry consolidator result in stable and profitable organic growth.
