WHO’S BEHIND THIS, AND WHY?
Founded by the social investing firm Candide Group, Real Money Moves seeks to raise awareness about the outsized impact money has on critical issues facing society. We are calling on both public figures and everyday people to put their money where their mouth is — starting with keeping it out of the private prisons profiting from family detention.
So far dozens of actors, athletes, artists and everyday activists have pledged to keep their money out of private prisons, and a select group are committing $10 Million to social investing.
Candide Group founding partner Morgan Simon, who is leading this initiative, has close to two decades of experience making finance a tool for social justice. In that time she has influenced over $150B and is a regularly sought out expert on impact investing. Her book, Real Impact: The New Economics of Social Change has been featured everywhere from Harvard Business School to the United Nations. She is a regular voice in media and active investor as Founding Partner of Candide Group, a Registered Investment Advisor.Learn how to join them by following Candide founding partner Morgan Simon on your favorite socials.
