QED’s Sustainable Investing Services

QED’s Sustainable Investing (SI) services deliver an array of financial advisory and consulting services to those involved in impact investing, financial structuring, venture philanthropy, and broader private sector engagement. We combine our extensive experience in finance and investing with our deep history in impact measurement and strategic consulting across a variety of sectors, including Economic Growth, Agriculture, Climate Change/Clean Energy, Health, and Trade.

QED is happy to welcome Sean Keogh as Director of Sustainable Investing, to lead the SI service area and advise donors, foundations, and investors in their impact investments. The three key SI areas QED supports aim to provide solutions to the ever-growing and changing industry of social investment in order to foster sustainable growth:

  • Impact Measurement: Efficiently and collaboratively provide third party verification of true impact and sustainability.
  • Structuring and Partnerships: Facilitate in the optimization of risk/return metrics and build partnerships to support investment through risk mitigation and diversified capital allocation.
  • Investor Advisory Services: Work on behalf of private sector and public entities to ensure strong practices for sustainable investment, bridging the divide between donor/foundation priorities and private sector benchmarks.

QED has helped enhance the impact of more than $3 billion in international development funding, and has been at the forefront of structuring innovative financial products, including over $280 million in complex loan guarantees. We are looking forward to expanding our work in Sustainable Investing, and helping our clients maximize the social impact of their international development programs and the value of their overseas investments.
