As part of our commitment to education and knowledge sharing, we are excited to announce that, one of our esteemed Co-Founders and SMT Member Remo Oswald, serves twice a year as a guest lecturer at FHNW School of Business, sharing insights on how microfinance works in practice. This lecture is a part of the CAS Sustainable Finance course module Sustainable Investing, aimed at equipping participants with the necessary tools to make a meaningful impact in the field of finance.
Microfinance has emerged as a powerful tool in addressing poverty and promoting financial inclusion worldwide. By providing small loans, savings, and other financial services to individuals who lack access to traditional banking systems, microfinance institutions empower entrepreneurs and enable them to build sustainable livelihoods. Through our guest lectures at the FHNW School of Business, we aim to shed light on the transformative potential of microfinance and inspire the next generation of finance professionals to embrace sustainable investing.
During the guest lectures, Remo will share real-world examples and case studies, illustrating the impact of microfinance on individuals, communities, and economies. They will delve into the principles and practices of microfinance, exploring topics such as:
- The role of microfinance in poverty alleviation and economic development.
- Microfinance models and their effectiveness in different contexts.
- Challenges and opportunities in scaling microfinance initiatives.
- Social and environmental considerations in microfinance investments.
- Innovations in technology and digital finance for expanding access to microfinance.
By combining theoretical knowledge with practical insights, we aim to share a comprehensive understanding of microfinance and its role in sustainable investing. Through interactive discussions and engaging activities, participants will have the opportunity to deepen their understanding, ask questions, and explore potential career paths in the field.
We are thrilled to contribute to the CAS Sustainable Finance at the FHNW School of Business through our expertise in microfinance. Stay tuned for updates on our guest lectures at FHNW, and join us in our mission to create a more inclusive and sustainable financial ecosystem.
