Social Impact at Wharton

Driving impact through research and training. 


Each year the Total Impact Portfolio Challenge invites student teams to put theory into practice to create a “100% impact portfolio” for a hypothetical client. This year’s client was a fictitious $250 million dollar university endowment with a focus on tackling climate change and income inequality. The student teams were tasked with building a portfolio and demonstrating how the portfolio meets the endowment’s impact goals, financial return goals, target asset allocation, and risk tolerance.
