SMU Sustainable Investment Club (SMU SI), formerly known as SMU Impact Investing, is the first and currently the only student club in Singapore to have an exclusive focus on sustainable finance. Founded in 2018, SMU SI now comprises over 100 members and continuously seeks to grow and nurture a community made up of like-minded individuals across varying academic backgrounds and levels of experience.
To nurture future leaders of sustainable investments, capable of managing an impact and sustainability-focused fund.
