Finance Matters is a London-based community working to put sustainability at the heart of finance. We believe the financial system that will work for the future will have sustainability at its heart - led by the actions of individuals inspired to make this opportunity a reality.

We provide the tools that finance professionals need to turn a single-bottom line career into a double- or triple-bottom-line one – whether through workplace innovation, moving to an impact-focused role, or investing personal time & money in companies and projects that are driving meaningful, positive social and environmental change.

Today, we are a community of over 300 individuals working in finance or associated with the London financial services industry. We have hosted dozens of events and workshops that provide new knowledge or help our members new concepts into practice. Finance Matters is hosted by The Finance Innovation Lab.
