Private Equity & Impact Investing
For Pierre-Laurent, business and finance are the best tools that mankind has developed to effect change at a large scale. These tools are neither inherently good or bad, but in the pursuit of ever growing profits we’ve lost the balance between the two and the large societal issues described by the UN SDGs are the consequence of this imbalance. As a result, Pierre-Laurent built his career around helping solve that imbalance, ultimately leading him to working at Fondaction as an impact investor. As part of this role, he gets to create and manage impact funds that generate positive environmental, social & economic benefits at scale.
