Together with the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University and INSEAD, Morgan Stanley Institute for Sustainable Investing, which was established near the end of 2013 by the investment bank to advance solutions to economic, social, and environmental challenges, announced today the firm’s latest Sustainable Investing Challenge.
This year, they are inviting graduate students to develop institutional-quality investment vehicles which, besides creating positive social and environmental impact, can produce competitive financial returns.
In a statement released by Morgan Stanley, Audrey Choi, who leads the Institute, mentioned two purposes of this competition: to leverage the tools of finance for tackling global challenges and to nurture the next generation of sustainable investing practitioners.
Students around the world can begin submitting their ideas on February 3rd. The deadline is on February 25th. Ten finalists from the competition will be invited to Morgan Stanley’s New York City headquarters to present their proposals.
