ICYMI: “Eight questions to ask when choosing an impact investment advisor.”

– Dennis Price, editorial director

Agent of the week

Agent of Impact: Bobby Turner. After a midlife crisis of conscience, the “evolved capitalist” is moving money, and quickly, into what he calls “the three-legged stool of social injustice” – education, housing and health care. Turner has deployed star power, including tennis star Andre Agassi, actress Eva Longoria and basketball star Chris Paul to mobilize more than $1 billion for charter schools, health clinics and affordable workforce housing in the U.S. He says “arrogance” and “distrust” are the two words that describe social impact investing. “Arrogance from the people with capital who think they know how to solve everything,” he explains. “And distrust from people in the community who think capital is there just to make a buck.” Follow ImpactAlpha on Instagram.
