MacroVenture

The LSESU Investment Society’s MacroVenture is dedicated to real, impactful investments that are driving the world to a more sustainable future.

Throughout the academic year, we host a series of events with industry-leading investment professionals to help you understand the ins and outs of socially responsible investing, impact investing and environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations for investors. From smart cities and renewable energy to foreign aid and fair trade practices, we want to show how real investment can increase prosperity, spark sustainable innovations and work hard for our collective future.

MacroVenture was founded on the belief that mobilizing sustainable investment is crucial for good social progress, advancing communities, and protecting the natural environment on which we all depend. As the wider investor marketplace takes a growing interest in impact investing – and is increasingly accounting for ESG risks and opportunities – we want to be at the fore. This is why we are taking an active role in inspiring the future investor community at LSE to strive for socially-conscious and environmentally-aware careers.

Under the umbrella of sustainable investing, we look at a broad variety of financing options – including infrastructure finance, emerging market and development finance and green finance. We also endeavor to contextualise our events, and discuss the influence of global economic and political trends on investment decisions. Moreover, we will always look to both the direct and indirect beneficiaries of sustainable or impact investment. Ultimately, there are myriad ways that increasingly aware investment can impact all of us – and the communities, economies, and ecosystems we exist within – for the better.

Watch out for upcoming events on our Facebook page.

Highlights

Venture Capital

Venture Capital Group is one of the divisions of the LSESU Investment Society. With the UK as the top venture capital market in Europe, interest in the industry has been growing steadily. The group aims to inform members about the industry and of potential career opportunities in the field. Throughout the year, we host several key events with guest speakers, such as a case study workshop and an introductory session to working in venture capital, providing students with the opportunity to network, develop essential skills and gain valuable insights.

Private Equity

The Private Equity group has two main functions: to give students an insight into the private equity industry, and to give them access to industry professionals to build their networks. Private equity is a highly prestigious and often secretive sector of the financial world. We want to demystify it through panels, networking events and skills workshops that will take place throughout the year. Look out for our ‘Introduction to Private Equity’ event taking place later this term – and if you want to get involved in organizing these events, feel free to send us a message! We could always use the help and it’ll look great on your CV.
