You will be joining the leading sustainable finance house. Acting in both a proprietary and advisory capacity we are like a green bank but better. We channel capitalism as a force for good, supporting sustainable and socially good economic activity with green and social finance. You will be leading the development and nurturing of our investor relations/capital markets function. As we apply our own balance sheet capital, rather than having ‘assets under management’, this network of investors and funders will supplement, support and provide an alternative to our own capital. This way we can remain catalytic to the sector

The Challenge:

Build or bring a network of investors such as HNWIs, family offices who can invest/co-invest into sustainable opportunities. We need to see a huge uplift in the capital available for this sector in order to hit our Paris goals of net zero. For that reason, you will need to build a wide network of investors, outside of existing sustainable investors. 

About us

You will be joining the leading sustainable finance house. Acting in both a proprietary and advisory capacity we are like a green bank but better. We channel capitalism as a force for good, supporting sustainable and socially good economic activity with green and social finance.  

You do not need to have experience in our sectors but if not you must have a genuine interest and desire to transition to this space. All of our team are believers and that is more important to us than relevant sector experience. 

 

We are well funded with a strong balance sheet. We also provide intellectual as well as financial capital in order to maximise our impact. We deploy our own proprietary capital and provide corporate finance / investment banking services to more broadly support our ecosystem.  

We are active in debt, equity and everything in between and you will work on a range of transaction sizes. If we think that something ought to be funded then we will work to deliver a solution to make that happen. 

If you believe doing well and doing good don’t have to be incompatible then working with us could be the opportunity for you. 

What will you be doing? 

You will be leading the development and nurturing of our investor relations / capital markets function.  

As we apply our own balance sheet capital, rather than having ‘assets under management’, this network of investors and funders will be called upon when we have secured or created investable opportunities which we want to advocate for, for example follow on funding or co-investment for our portfolio companies.  

You will need to collaborate closely with the origination and execution teams and will have meaningful input on transactions from inception.  

As an institution, we also want to create an ecosystem in which companies in our sector have access to a plurality of funding throughout their growth. This means bringing in conventional finance, rather than just those who already have a sustainable focus.  

Your focus will be on nurturing these relationships with current and potential funders so that when we need to execute then we have an immediate deep pool of capital to approach. Due to our broad work across this sector, these relationships will be with a variety of funders but your focus will be on those who can write cheques in the range of £250k - £5m. 

All our team: 

  • Believe in the urgent need to direct capital into companies and solutions that will help reduce our negative effect on the planet and the climate 
  • Have committed to joining a team full of passionate, like-minded people  
  • Work hard as a team to meet our shared goal of creating a ‘bank’ that’s fit for the future  

We would like you to bring: 

  • An existing network of investors who are actively investing in the region of £250k - £5m 
  • The ability (and ideally a track record) of building this kind of network from scratch 
  • A structured approach to building and maintaining a network of investors. You will be a natural networker and able to manage & nurture the investor network on our CRM. 

Objectives 

  • Build & own a network of investment partners who can quickly execute on green deals secured by our origination team 
  • Advocate to conventional investors the long- and short-term advantages of sustainable/green investments  
  • Showcase best practice in how conventional finance products can create a stable source of yield within sustainable finance 
  • Representing the business at external events across the UK and abroad
