Impact Investment Solutions
JBJ Consult is an independent impact investment advisory boutique founded in 2010 by Julia Balandina Jaquier. Based in Zurich, Switzerland, it works with individuals and organizations around the world who want their investments and businesses to generate not only financial returns but also a significant societal impact. It provides bespoke advice to private, institutional, and sovereign investors and philanthropists, helping them develop and implement mission-driven investment strategies, programs, and vehicles. JBJ Consult also builds the capacity of asset owners and managers to engage successfully in impact finance.
The core of our work is supporting asset owners, with a primary focus on families of wealth, their foundations, and Family Offices.

Investing with Impact
JBJ Consult is the founder of KATALYST, a capacity-building program for families of wealth, designed to help them accelerate their involvement in impact finance.
Conducted in small cohorts of 3-6 people in a safe and confidential environment, with content tailored to the individual needs of participants, the program combines practice-oriented finance and impact investment training with curated strategy development, coaching and mentoring, and (optional) internship at an impact investment firm.
It is an effective and enjoyable way for wealth owners to build their skills, confidence, and networks, craft bespoke strategies, and develop a pragmatic implementation approach.
