Asian social stock exchange founder Durreen Shahnaz seeks Trump’s support for impact investing

Women Rising

Asian social stock exchange founder Durreen Shahnaz is seeking Trump’s support for impact investing.

“I may have been born in Bangladesh, but I was nurtured to be a banker, media executive and entrepreneur in the US,” Shahnaz wrote in an open letter to President Trump.

Shahnaz is the founder of IIX, based in Singapore, which connects social enterprises with mission-driven investors.

A Muslim woman immigrant, Shahnaz appealed to Trump as a fellow grad of the Wharton School.

“Impact investing will engage people around the world to invest in their communities, create jobs, bring economic growth and perhaps even create climate solutions.”
