Now Accepting Applications for Second Cohort of Integrated Capital Institute

RSF Social Finance has opened the application process for its Integrated Capital Institute. This intensive program will give financial practitioners the tools and strategies they need to help values-driven clients deploy various forms of capital for lasting social and environmental benefit.

Fellows will learn about wealth psychology, whole portfolio activation, and RSF’s integrated capital approach: the coordinated use of diverse financing tools (including loans, loan guarantees, investments, and grants), and network connections and advisory services to support enterprises that are solving complex social and environmental problems.

The Integrated Capital Institute is ideal for professionals who work with family foundations, family offices, high-net-worth individuals, and community foundations. The nine-month program involves three in-person training intensives running four days each, one-on-one sessions with expert advisors, peer coaching, case studies, webinars, and independent study. RSF is accepting applications through April 30, 2018.

“Wealth holders who want to leverage capital for transformative change need financial practitioners who have the same passion as they do, as well as the leadership skills and financial expertise to deploy capital in ways that will have a lasting and positive impact,” said Deb Nelson, RSF’s vice president, client and community engagement.

Faculty members include Joel Solomon, chair and co-founder of Renewal Funds, Marian Moore, producer and lead facilitator of Play BIG and Lead with Land, and Akaya Windwood, president of the Rockwood Leadership Institute.

“We plan to educate and connect thousands of integrated capital practitioners through this program and our other field-building efforts. These practitioners will serve as the bridge that connects wealth to innovative solutions,” said Nelson.
