Helene Li, Co-Founder, GoImpact receives the Leadership Achievement in Wealth and Society Project Award for 2018

By Foo Boon Ping

The recipient of Leadership Achievement in Wealth and Society Project Award for 2018 is Helene Li, Co-Founder, GoImpact.

She is an advocate for social investment as well as a top influencer on Sustainability and Impact. She believes in the power and potential of capital markets to bring about positive social changes, and proactively pushes for purpose-led investment to become mainstream in the financial industry.

She has been actively involved in social impact programs and charities such as the Next Generation program for BNP Paribas Wealth Management, the Creative Capitalism Forum, Family Office Forum and Time Auction. She also dedicates a portion of her time educating and working with universities, businesses and the community, to help promote sustainable development across different sectors.

Not satisfied with just shaping and influencing the development of social impact and impact investing, she has also lately taken up the mantel of becoming a social entrepreneur to be wholly and physically involved.

She co-founded the investment platform GoImpact, which connects investors and other stakeholders interested in impact investing, as part of the effort to fund projects to achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Which require US$2.5 trillion yearly to fund their attainment.

Her work with different sectors and the community is truly inspiring.
