Impact Investment Group (IIG) has filled a newly formed role, head of capital raising and investor relations.
IIG head of syndication Amanda Goodman has taken the job, having previously been fund manager for the company.
She has run IIG’s Sydney office since she joined the company in 2014 and is responsible for managing the group’s relationships with institutional investors and intermediary groups.
Ms Goodman was one of the group’s first hires after the founding team. She is also a member of the impact investment forum, an advisory group for the Responsible Investment Association of Australasia (RIAA).
Ms Goodman has more than 18 years’ experience in investment banking, venture capital and structured finance in the US, UK and in Australia, as well as a number of years’ experience in the non-profit sector.
She started her career at Goldman Sachs in New York and London in the real estate advisory team, part of the investment banking division, and was a founding principal of venture capital firm Frontiers Capital in London.
After arriving in Australia in 2001, she worked with LJCB Investment Group, a private investment group owned by the Liberman family and JCA, a non-profit fundraising and planning organisation for the Jewish community in NSW and the ACT.
IIG chief executive Daniel Madhavan commented: “Amanda has been an astounding ambassador for IIG and the whole impact investing industry.
“Since 2014, she’s brought to IIG’s community her exceptional knowledge of the sector, her deep care for clients, her commitment to benefiting people and the planet and a work ethic second to none.”
IIG reported it is working with more financial advisers and institutions as they respond to market demand for impact investments.
