The investment policy of Goldman Sachs’ “Urban Investment Group”[Initiative] by Christoph Melerski

2016-01-16

The author was part of the Alternative Management third year specialization program at HEC, in 2013-2014

At first glance, this innovation appears to reconcile social well-being and high financial returns. Nonetheless, multiple challenges lie ahead, of which the financial instrument’s sustainability and effective impact assessment are the two most pressing ones.
