Openings with Our Partners

Portfolio Manager - Candide Group

Candide Group has launched Olamina Fund LLC (“Olamina”) in collaboration with one of our clients with the overarching objective of addressing the lack of access to capital for communities that have faced decades of historical extraction. We have identified those communities as led by people of color and women (specifically, Black and Native). Working with the Managing Director of Olamina, the Credit Committee and the soon to be formed Community Advisory Board, the portfolio manager will perform due diligence and manage relationships within this new portfolio, which will include loans to a variety of private debt providers such as CDFIs, non-profit loan funds, and other institutions that may work in the areas such as small business development, worker cooperatives, and low-income housing. The investment thesis for the Fund is very specific about creatively providing access to capital to women and communities of color so the ideal candidate will be comfortable working with diverse populations in a transparent way and will be open to taking the lead from the community.

The ideal candidate will bring deep analytical skills, empathy and compassion and a questioning mind to the position. We expect that there will be both teaching and learning in this role, specifically around the intersectionality of issues impacting communities of color and women. While due diligence experience would be welcomed, we highly encourage applications from candidates beyond impact investing and finance, especially those who have had deep experience analyzing issue areas, developing policy, working in social movements and working with diverse viewpoints.
