WEBINAR - Promoting Alternative Finance

  • September 18, 2013 · 7:30 PM
  • Online Meeting

Financial Inclusion & Social Enterprise.

In an age when our conventional institutions are discredited in the eyes of many,then is it possible to offer and promote ethical finance and are social enterprises the engines that are best placed to do that.

This Webinar will consider whether it is possible to offer profitable and sustainable investment packages to give investors access to a host of social and environmental projects that create a profit while adding lasting value to our society and planet. Is social enterprise one way forward to eithical finance?

A significant proportion of the UK population do not have access to good advice on money management because most advisory firms provide their service to higher income households. Many people on low incomes are not aware even of basic ways of managing their finances and do not have access to adequate financial planning providers, products and in some extreme cases even to bank accounts and banking facilities. Leading us in this webinar will be,

Christiana Fatoki the founder and CEO of Visionnaire Consulting a Social Enterprise that promotes Ethical Financial Advice who uses their profits to provide Financial Education to support hard to reach communities. Visionnaire also provide programmes and partner with Charities to help their vulnerable users gain a better understanding of their finances and plan for the future.

Visionnaire is a social enterprise that promotes alternative forms of finance and supports grass roots movements to change the way that the financial system is currently run and managed. They believe that it is possible to offer profitable and sustainable investment packages to give investors access to a host of social and environmental projects that create a profit while adding lasting value to our society and planet.

Visionnaire works closely with the local community to train and advise the nation’s most vulnerable people. Our fund of funds enables companies and institutions to receive funding. We use a combination of networking events, workshops and the motivational talks to reach members of the public and give them advice on everything from the state pension to bankruptcy and insolvency.  The crux of our vision is to ensure that all people receive quality financial advice to adequately prepare themselves and their families financially for the future.
