Purpose Capital welcomes Andrea Nemtin

Purpose Capital is pleased to announce Andrea Nemtin has joined the company. As partner, Andrea will work with the team to build the organizational strategy to expand Purpose Capital’s service offering and scale the business with the ultimate goal of accelerating the shift of capital towards social and environmental solutions.  

“I am delighted to have someone of Andrea’s calibre join Purpose Capital to redouble our efforts to catalyze greater interest, mobilize greater capital and enhance the impact investment ecosystem. Andrea’s deep experience in impact investing and strategic philanthropy, a solid track record in creating positive social change, and her proven abilities as a leader in the sector are all valuable assets to strengthen and expand our reach. She is a great addition to our team,” said Upkar Arora, CEO of Purpose Capital.   

Ms. Nemtin has spent the last seven years at the helm of Inspirit Foundation, where impact investing was a key strategy for the organization.

“Having seen the positive environmental and social change that impact investing can make, I am passionate about helping other organizations and individuals align their assets with their values. In the last seven years the demand for socially and environmentally conscious investment solutions has increased exponentially, but much more needs to happen and the time is ripe for that to occur. Having worked closely with Purpose Capital when we were creating Inspirit’s framework for our 100% Impact portfolio, I truly believe they are ideally positioned to fill this growing need in the market, and society,” said Andrea Nemtin.
