GOLD (Social Impact): Investec & Arrival Education
PROJECT: Invest for Success
For the last ten years Investec has partnered with social mobility social enterprise Arrival Education, helping to deliver youth development programmes. Based in Tower Hamlets, Arrival work to equip young people who face social, economic and cultural barriers, with personal qualities, skills and mind-sets to achieve success.
Investec was approached by the AE co-founding entrepreneurs when it was just an idea. With our own entrepreneurial roots, and Entrepreneurship and Education focuses of our CSR strategy, it is a great values and culture fit. We recently co-created an investment programme, giving students a unique understanding of financial markets, trading and investments.
