Finance as a force for good

From Nine To Noon, 9:34 am on 28 September 2017

Singapore-based Natasha Garcha was working for a top hedge fund during the GFC when she realised over 2.5 billion people are excluded from the financial system worldwide. Natasha tells Lynn Freeman how this set her on a journey to combine her passion for wanting to do good with her finance skills, most recently creating the Women's Livelihood Bond, the world's first impact investing instrument that can be listed on a stock exchange. Currently Natasha works at Impact Investment Exchange (IIX), a leading impact investing company in Asia-Pacific which launched a New Zealand chapter this September. Natasha is speaking in Christchurch at the Social Enterprise World Forum.
