TriLinc Global Supports High Water Women’s Initiative to Empower Women through Impact Investing

On April 7th, Joan Trant, TriLinc Global Director of Marketing & Impact, joined a group of senior women from the hedge fund and impact investing industries to assess the impact investing landscape and determine how High Water Women, a New York-based nonprofit dedicated to promoting the social and economic empowerment of women and youth, can increase women’s awareness and participation in impact investing. Women hold a significant amount of wealth globally, and according to Kristan Wojner and Chuck Meek in Women’s Views of Wealth and the Planning Process: It’s Values That Matter, Not Just Value, women are estimated to inherit 70% of the $41 trillion in intergenerational wealth transfer expected over the next 40 years.

Following on its highly acclaimed Investing for Impact Symposium held October 3, 2013, High Water Women is building a strategic process and tools to support women seeking to invest in the impact space. “In addition to speaking at the Symposium, TriLinc Global is delighted to be part of this visionary and dynamic group convened by High Water Women,” said Ms. Trant. “TriLinc Global helps investors recognize the power they have through their investment decisions. Collaborating with High Water Women is an exciting opportunity to support women investors aiming to prove that investments with socioeconomic and environmental benefits also have the potential to achieve competitive returns for their portfolios.”
