Nicolas Malmendier is Corporate Initiative Associate at EVPA.
After acquiring an academic background in Germanic Linguistics and Literature as well as International Business Economics and Management, he joined the investing for impact space in 2020. Since then, he has been conducting research on European corporate social investing topics such as strategic alignment, collective corporate impact strategies and impact integrity.
The strategic alignment between a corporate social investor and its related company can mean greater social impact. But a close relationship can also jeopardise the ‘impact integrity’ of corporate social investors, as new research by EVPA shows.
