Impak Finance, Head of Impact
Velina Serafimov started her sustainability career advising companies in the establishment of their CSR strategies and verification of their extra-financial results. As a member of Deloitte Sustainability Services team in Paris, among several other international mandates, she carried out the extra-financial audit of four responsible investment funds of AXA IM, who were first to make these types of audit results public. From London, Velina then worked in parallel for the Fairtrade initiative as an accredited auditor and for Investing for Good (IFG), a leading impact investing intermediary and an impact consulting firm. At IFG, she led impact evaluations and consulting projects to design and implement impact management frameworks and processes for social businesses, NGOs and investment funds, before crossing paths with Impak Finance and moving to Montreal.
