Ogier Talent4Impact Programme

Talent4Impact is a programme that aims to build a pipeline of ESG and Impact-ready talent for the marketplace by supporting and exposing more professionals to practical work experience in the industry. The programme launched

in Hong Kong in 2021, with an aim to support local talent to kick-start their career in sustainable investment by completing a fellowship with Ogier Global's Sustainable Investment Consulting business and our founding impact partners Dream Impact and Sustainable Finance Initiative.

Further details on our Founding Impact Partners can be found below.

Working alongside some of the brightest finance minds to support these individuals on their journey into impact has been a pleasure.

We are delighted to continue to support our fellows in 2022 and to work towards getting more talent into impact, Leonie Kelly, Global Head of Sustainable Investment Consulting

Why is this important? Sustainable investment knowledge and product innovation remains a skills gap among mainstream finance practitioners across asset class and the wider ecosystem in Hong Kong, which will continue if action isn't taken to bridge this gap, as noted by the Hong Kong Monetary Authority and the Hong Kong Investment Funds Association.

Ogier Talent4Impact aims to help address this challenge by nurturing the next generation of talent to support future growth within the area.

Its premise is that by providing Fellowships for local Hong Kong-based candidates, we will see a measurable increase in the number of skilled ESG and Impact professionals in the industry in the long term. What is new in 2022?

We are delighted to add an Industry Partner stream to the programme this year. Industry Partners will form a key role in Talent4Impact by taking fellows on one placement during the programme.

All our industry partners are committed to supporting talent to kick-starting their career in sustainable investment and impact.

Announcements regarding our Industry Partners will follow in July 2022. Application Deadline June 26, 2022 Department Sustainable Investment Consulting Employment Type Internship Location Hong Kong

    Dream Impact is a resource bridging platform in Hong Kong that connects social startups with resources that accelerate growth in both business and social impact.

    Talent4Impact was a great way for finance talents to experience and apply their skills to impact from the grassroots to family offices to sovereign funds, utilising their head, heart and hands to examine the relationship between impact and finance" Dorothy Lam, Co-Founder & Chief Catalyst at Dream Impact.

    SFi is a community of private investors who believe in catalysing capital towards sustainable finance. Our mission is to mobilise private capital for positive impact.

    We empower family offices, private investors and financial services professionals with the knowledge and expertise to invest for purpose and profit.
