The Opportunity

The Associate – Investment Services role will be a critical part of the Investment Services team, which supports investment execution and post-investment management and monitoring for private debt and equity impact investments that are recommended by our donors/clients. The Investment Services team engages with mission-driven entrepreneurs and fund managers, assesses them for investment eligibility, reviews and executes subscription/investment agreements, enters investment transactions, manages corporate actions, and monitors investment activity, reporting and valuations. This role is a part of the engine at the heart of ImpactAssets’ mission and the team that catalyzes our clients’ capital toward social and environmental progress.

The ideal Associate candidate has a service heart, a meticulous eye for detail, and is energized by being in the flow of investment activity, evaluating deal documents and thinking through the long-term effects of terms and structures.
