The workgroup, spearheaded by Transform Financethe Ford Foundationthe Surdna Foundation, and Pi Investments, brought together experts and practitioners in the impact investing space with the goal to further define a project plan to empower fund managers to adopt good job quality standards across their portfolios. HCAP Partners’ presentation discussed the firm’s initiative to maximize impact by investing in quality jobs and helping portfolio companies move toward driving impact intentionality(outcomes) vs. monitoring and reporting (outputs).
 
On July 8th, 2015, Tim Bubnack and Hope Mago presented HCAP Partners’ Impact investing “floor-and-ladder” approach during a webinar organized by Transform Finance with participation by Pi Investments. The Fund’s floor-and-ladder approach was developed late last year in collaboration with Transform Finance and Pi Investments as a tool to implement improvements in job quality standards around living wages, employee benefits, opportunities for job advancement, and opportunities for broad based worker ownership. This work has turned into a major industry initiative being convened by Transform Finance to help asset owners and fund managers contribute to the creation of good quality jobs.
